Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Global demographic and epidemiological transitions are occurring. Aging is a global concern that affects Western, Asian and other populations inclusively. A large portion of overall health spending is devoted to elderly persons, with much of this being taken up by non-communicable diseases. Healthy dietary patterns and specific nutrients have been shown to be beneficial for promoting health and prolonging life among older adults. While there is considerable interest among scientists regarding the direct and indirect effects of nutrition on the health and aging status of the older population, there is still scant information on temporal and regional patterns. Nutrition can have a specific impact on aging-related health outcomes and disability, such as sarcopenia and frailty, in either prevention or intervention schemes. Given the importance of this issue, the journal Nutrients is planning a Special Issue on “Dietary Intake and Health Status in Older Adults”, with the aim of providing a source for accurate, up-to-date scientific information on this topic.

Considering the success of the previous Special Issue, we are pleased to announce that we are launching a second Special Issue on the same topic. We invite you and your co-workers to consider submitting your original research findings or a review article on this topic. Manuscripts should focus on nutrition and aging epidemiology, public health nutrition for older adults or the direct impact of specific food components, dietary patterns, energy intake, macro- and micro-nutrients, alcohol intake, food insecurity, innovative foods, malnourishment or appetite on the health status of older populations. We also welcome manuscripts that focus on nutrition intervention studies (i.e., protein diet, diet quality) and the nutrient intake effect and longevity process (i.e., multimorbidity, disability, well-being and frailty).
