Special Issue "Dietary Patterns and Human Health"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018)
There is growing recognition of the importance of investigating overall diet or dietary patterns, rather than focusing on single foods or nutrients, because dietary pattern analysis can summarize the potentially synergistic effects of foods and nutrients. This approach is also useful for the development of dietary guidelines, given that people eat foods (and thus nutrients) in combination. This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled “Dietary Patterns and Human Health”, welcomes the submission of manuscripts either describing original research or reviewing the scientific literature on this topic. Studies based on dietary patterns based on both a priori and a posteriori approaches are welcome. Studies focusing on methodological aspects are also encouraged.Dr. Kentaro Murakami
