Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as cerebrovascular diseases, hypertension, diabetes and osteoporosis, is on the rise. Addressing the prevention and treatment of NCDs has become an urgent challenge. Unhealthy lifestyles, characterized by an imbalanced diet and lack of exercise, are the primary contributors to most NCDs. Increasing evidence indicates a close relationship between dietary patterns and physical health.  A well-balanced diet has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome and tumors. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the interaction between dietary components and NCDs need to be further explored. This collection aims to publish research and review articles on the molecular mechanisms of different dietary patterns and dietary interventions in the prevention and treatment of NCDs.
