We invite you to contribute to a Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled “Advances in Dietary Sodium Research to Improve Human Health”. The purpose of this Special Issue is to advance knowledge to inform programs and policies for population-wide dietary sodium reduction. To supplement these contributions, we welcome the submission of manuscripts describing original research and systematic reviews/meta analyses. Manuscripts across a broad range of topics will be considered, but priority will be given to manuscripts that address the following themes:
- Health impacts of population-wide dietary sodium reduction
- Health economic analyses related to population-wide dietary sodium reduction
- Changes in dietary sodium intake at the population level.
- Effects of novel interventions to reduce dietary sodium at the patient, community or population level
- Development and impact of social marketing campaigns to reduce dietary sodium
- Sodium content in the food supply
- Knowledge, attitudes and behaviors of the public and other stakeholders (i.e., food service, food industry, education sector) related to sodium
- Analysis of the development and implementation of knowledge translation strategies that resulted in engaged and activated partners and networks and policy change related to sodium
