Interests: role of diet and exercise in health optimisation - impact on cardiovascular and metabolic risk factors and elucidation of underlying mechanisms; development of an integrated approach (diet, lifestyle and drugs) to risk management; food sources and intake recommendations for omega-3 and other bioactive nutrients
Recognition of the diverse health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids and their significance for population health has been one of the most fascinating developments in nutritional science. However, before its full impact can be realised, there are still many scientific challenges to be addressed as health policy, delivery and environmental issues are resolved. At the same time, knowledge of physiological functions and health benefits continues to expand and diversify in areas of growing need, such as metabolic and mental health. The purpose of this special issue is to update progress in selected of fields of omega-3 research endeavour.
