Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

“We are what we eat” claimed the German philosopher Feuerbache and he was right: health is built at the table through food. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), thanks to correct nutrition, the percentage of cardiovascular and cancer diseases is reduced. 600 million people worldwide get sick every year due to unsafe food. The food route is one of the main ways of exposure to chemical and microbiological hazards that produce effects on human and animal health. Several researchers have published that a significant increase in lipid peroxidation is one of the main factors involved in the rancidity of dietary fats, such as vegetable oils, with consequent loss of food quality and organoleptic characteristics. In recent years, several studies have shown how foods rich in antioxidants can improve the quality of food products and the health of the consumer. The purpose of this Special Issue is to support human health through basic, multidisciplinary and clinical research of food and commodities of animal origin to improve public health in a One Health concept.

We are inviting you to submit your latest research findings or a review article to this Special Issue, which will provide the latest information on the beneficial effects of natural antioxidants and demonstrate the underlying molecular mechanisms of their bioactivities using various in vitro and in vivo disease models.

Dr. Sara Damiano
Guest Editor
