Special Issue "Nutrition and Age-Related Disorders"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2019)
The projected rise in the global population, of people aged 60 years or older, in the upcoming decades, poses a major burden to public health, societies, and economies at a global scale, due to an expected rise in age-related chronic diseases. To face this upcoming challenge, adequate preventive actions are urgently required. Nutrition may hold the key of promoting healthy aging, as well as of preventing and managing a wide array of age-related diseases, including cardio-vascular disease, cancer, cognitive decline, and sarcopenia. However, a better understanding of how nutrition influences the underlying molecular processes associated with age-related health decline, such as compromised immunity, chronic inflammatory conditions, and oxidative-stress, is required. Novel approaches for nutritional assessment including omics-based nutritional biomarkers of ageing may provide the missing link towards more targeted nutritional approaches for healthy ageing. Indeed, personalised nutrition targeted at major hallmarks of ageing could prove more effective compared to broadly-stated nutritional recommendations. This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled “Nutrition and Age-Related Diseases”, welcomes the submission of manuscripts describing original research or reviewing the scientific literature on this topic.
