The Journal of Cardiovascular Development and Disease (JCDD) is launching a Special Issue on “Nutrition, Genetics, and Cardiovascular Disease”. JCDD is a peer-reviewed online journal, in its fourth year of existence, which publishes review articles and original works on cardiovascular development and disease.
It is well documented that cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death worldwide, in which genetic and environmental factors seem to play a determinant role. In fact, several dietary factors and nutritional-related diseases (i.e., obesity, type 2 diabetes) are strongly associated with cardiovascular diseases. In addition, genome-wide association studies have also identified numerous genomic loci that determine susceptibility to cardiovascular events. Therefore, nutrition and genetics seem to interact in predisposing an individual to cardiovascular diseases.
This Special Issue will provide a platform for the presentation of recent advances in knowledge on nutrition, genetics, and cardiovascular disease coming from diverse scientific disciplines.
