Poor diet is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. However, the causal role of specific foods, nutrients, and other dietary compounds in health and disease is not fully established, as most evidence derives from traditional observational studies. Such studies are susceptible to residual confounding, reverse causation bias, and misclassification of dietary intake. Mendelian randomization is a method that can reduce such biases in observational studies and provide more robust evidence concerning the role of dietary factors in health and disease.
The present Special Issue aims to add research knowledge from Mendelian randomization studies on nutritional factors in relation to health outcomes, including diseases and risk factors (e.g., hypertension, elevated blood lipids, and adiposity) that may mediate the diet–disease associations. This issue welcomes original and review articles reporting results from Mendelian randomization studies.
