Diet is inextricably linked to cardiovascular health, morbidity and mortality. Dietary practices can have significant acute and chronic effects on the vascular tree and can lay the groundwork for future cardiovascular disease or for prevention of cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this special issue, “Diet and Vascular Function,” is to address significant gaps in our knowledge of the effects of different dietary patterns/practices on vascular function. The editors encourage submissions focusing on therapeutic or pathophysiological effects of diet, including dietary supplements, on the vascular tree and on macro/microvascular function. Research may focus on acute impact of meals or long-term effects of sustained dietary intervention.
