Ferroptosis, which has been widely associated with many diseases, is an iron-dependent regulated cell death characterized by intracellular lipid peroxide accumulation. It exhibits morphological, biochemical, and genetic characteristics that are unique in comparison to other types of cell death. The course of ferroptosis can be accurately regulated by the metabolism of iron, lipids, amino acids, and various signal pathways. In this review, we summarize the basic characteristics of ferroptosis, its regulation, as well as the relationship between ferroptosis and chronic diseases such as cancer, nervous system diseases, metabolic diseases, and inflammatory bowel diseases. Finally, we describe the regulatory effects of food-borne active ingredients on ferroptosis.
