Nutrients is planning a Special Issue focusing on “Preventive Nutrition”.
Never, as today, the great amount and choice of food available have led to a substantial change in lifestyle, favoring the global emergence of overweight- and obesity-related chronic degenerative diseases (CDD). The Word Health Organization (WHO) has strongly emphasized the main role of unhealthy eating habits in the onset of CDD associated with a sedentary lifestyle and smoking.
Nutrition is able to modify patients’ risk profile both in primary and in secondary prevention of CDD. Preventive Nutrition represents a branch of Science of Nutrition. Its aim is to prevent, delay, or reduce the increased global trend of CDD, prevent and slow the progression of CDD, and thus improve the well-being of the general population.
All experts in this field are invited to submit articles that highlight the beneficial role of preventive nutrition.
