Special Issue "Diet, Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health in Vulnerable Populations"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2019
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the biggest public health burdens worldwide. While CVD usually occurs in middle age, increasing evidence shows that the pathophysiological processes underlying CVD, such as changes to functional and structural characteristics of arteries begin during the first decade of life. It is known that certain vulnerable groups, such as ethnic minority groups, low socio-economic status, and children have different CVD trajectories. These different risk trajectories are associated with factors at the individual, social and environmental level. In particular, these individual, social and environmental factors impact lifestyle behaviors, including diet, physical activity and sedentary behavior.
This Special Issue aims to include original research and up-to-date reviews on the role of diet and other lifestyle factors in cardiometabolic health in populations vulnerable to developing CVD.
