Special Issue "Dietary Fat and Human Health Outcomes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2021).
We are very excited to announce that in this Special Issue of Nutrients we are planning to bring together articles that discuss the link between dietary fats and health to include all age-related conditions and beyond.
The postulated impact of dietary fats and particularly saturated fats on cardiovascular disease has been a topic of debate for many decades. Numerous enlightening publications in previous years have aimed to elucidate this controversy. Despite the plethora of published research, many questions and controversies remain concerning the scientific basis of the current fat-specific dietary recommendations. The role of dietary fats in cardiovascular disease (CVD) and many other conditions is complex, and further research is required to provide strong evidence on the association between dietary fats and health.
We welcome different types of manuscript submissions, including original research articles and up-to-date reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses).
Potential topics may include but are not limited to the associations between dietary fats (saturated fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids, omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, trans fatty acids) and health outcomes including cardiovascular disease, obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, inflammation, immune function, neurodegeneration/cognitive function/mental health, and child health and development. As food reformulation may be integral in meeting dietary recommendations, we also welcome articles on sustainable product reformulation and fat intake.
