We are pleased to announce a Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health entitled “Research on Lifestyle, Nutrition, Consumer Behavior, and Family Health”.
A family is considered as the basic unit of health production at the individual and societal level, a context in public health practice, and an essential part of public health policy, research, and teaching. At the same time, family health represents a broad area of health development, including all family members across time and settings.
Recent studies have indicated a growing list of determinants of health, as they are associated with education, employment, income, family, living environment, nutrition, as well as other social determinants, such as early life, stress, social exclusion, social support, addiction, health system, gender, culture and social norms, media, stigma, and discrimination. Within the important determinants of health, there are purchase decisions and consumer behaviors, defined by the American Marketing Association as the dynamic interaction of affect and cognition, behavior, and the environment by which human beings conduct the exchange aspects of their lives.
In the last few months, as the world has been experiencing the COVID-19 global pandemic, we have observed the dynamic changes of individual and global priorities. These reflect the interests and concerns of populations toward possibilities to influence one’s health by including positive changes in their lifestyle, nutrition, and consumer behaviors.
In this Special Issue of IJERPH, we would like to give readers valuable insights into associations between lifestyle, nutrition, consumer behavior, and family health. The Guest Editors would like to invite original research and reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses) on the following topics:
- Physical, mental, or social family health outcomes in various population groups;
- Determinants of health in the 21st century and in the period of the global COVID-19 pandemic;
- Influence of family and living environment on lifestyle and physical activity;
- Lifestyle strategies to promote family health from childhood to elderly age;
- Dietary patterns and nutritional behaviors in diet-related disease prevention and treatment;
- Consumer attitudes, purchase decisions, and food choices for prevention and treatment of diet-related diseases;
- Associations between environmental factors and resultant dietary health benefits and risks;
- Marketing strategies and food policy for public health purposes.
Other topics within the “Research on Lifestyle, Nutrition, Consumer Behavior, and Family Health” are also welcome.
