This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled “Assessing the Mediterranean Diet in Public Health: Scoring Systems, Effects on Chronic Diseases and Interventions”, welcomes the submission of manuscripts describing either original research or reviewing the scientific literature. Manuscripts should focus on different alternatives to measure adherence to the Mediterranean Diet (MedDiet). How this adherence is scored using different indexes and also the association of these scores with the risk of chronic disease.
Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Indexes used to score the adherence to a MedDiet-style pattern, strengths, limitations and comparability of the different scores
- Adherence to the MedDiet and scoring approaches in non-Mediterranean countries.
- Association between MedDiet indexes and the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and other chronic diseases.
- Transferability of the Mediterranean diet to non-Mediterranean countries
- Evaluation of MedDiet-based interventions for the prevention of chronic diseases.
- MedDiet indexes and their relationship with indexes developed to assess other a priori healthy dietary patterns.
