Nutritional Epidemiology

A section of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).

Section Information

The section “Nutritional Epidemiology” aims to publish contributions on the impact of food consumption and nutritional status on different health aspects. Papers should provide new knowledge from the descriptive cross-sectional studies to those studies contributing to prevent the appearance of nutrition-related diseases, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular diseases and also other conditions like fragility or mental health. We also encourage the submission of manuscripts providing etiologic studies, performed in large cohorts, multi-center studies and international collaborations. Randomized clinical trials assessing the effect of food consumption and the effectiveness of health promotion interventions will have special attention.
