The global burden of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular and renal diseases, diabetes, certain cancers, osteoporosis, obesity, and also chronic infections and chronic inflammatory diseases, is rapidly increasing. This creates a major public health threat that requires innovative prevention and therapeutic strategies. Diet and nutrition are fundamental cornerstones to prevent chronic diseases from early childhood throughout adult life and thus provide ample opportunities for targeted interventions. A common misconception is that chronic diseases are most prevalent in the industrialized world, while the truth is that the rate of chronic diseases is mostly increasing in developing countries. Susceptibility to chronic diseases is a multifactorial event that typically involves behavioral, biological, as well as societal factors. In addition, metabolic diversity, the human microbiome, and, not least, the impact of nutrition on the immune system may be important determinants of chronic disease outcome. This Special Issue ”Targeted Nutrition in Chronic Disease”, considers the role of nutrition in chronic disease and the development of nutritional supplementation and dietary recommendations for potential clinical applications.
