Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The “Nutritional Epidemiology” section of the journal Nutrients aims to publish contributions on the impact of food consumption and nutritional status on different health outcomes. The current Special Issue, entitled “Highlights in Nutritional Epidemiology”, aims to present papers from excellent research groups working in this area. Papers should provide new knowledge obtained from descriptive cross-sectional studies or studies that contribute to preventing the appearance of nutrition-related diseases, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease, and also other conditions like fragility or mental illness. Randomized clinical trials assessing the effect of food consumption and the effectiveness of health promotion interventions will attract special attention.
