Special Issue "Mediterranean Diet—New Findings"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (26 November 2021) | Viewed by 7714
The Mediterranean Diet should not be understood merely as a nutritional guideline, but rather as a food culture in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle that has developed over hundreds of years throughout the countries of the Mediterranean basin. This health pattern is currently one of the most commonly studied topics in the field of Nutrition and Medicine, not only in Mediterranean countries, but elsewhere. Great efforts have been made and important studies have been undertaken to analyze the favorable effects of the Mediterranean Diet on a large number of pathologies, the results being of great interest to the scientific community.
Although huge advances have taken place in recent years in epidemiological research into the beneficial effects of the Mediterranean Diet, especially in preventing cardiovascular diseases, there is still insufficient scientific evidence on the mechanisms through which those effects on health occur, along with their effect at the cellular level and the interactions between foods. Similarly, we do not fully know which individuals may benefit more from following a Mediterranean Diet profile than any other dietary pattern, nor which specific foods or food profiles are the healthiest for each kind of disease (cardiovascular, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, obesity, etc.). Hence, articles that include genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic and/or metabolomic analyses of the different phenotypes, foods and lifestyles related to the Mediterranean Diet would be of great interest to this Special Issue, an issue that focuses on the latest advances that provide knowledge for us to further the aims of personalized medicine and precision nutrition.
This Nutrients Special Issue, “Mediterranean Diet—New Findings”, will, therefore, focus on providing multidisciplinary evidence on the effects of the Mediterranean Diet on health in various fields. We hope to receive many articles from outstanding experts on this topic. Both original epidemiological studies on humans and original articles on experimental models as well as review articles on any of these areas or updated meta-analyses are welcome.
