Our well-being and good health depend as much as 50% on our lifestyle, including our diet. Numerous studies have proven that incorrect eating behavior is a risk factor for the development of a number of diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, obesity, diabetes, insulin resistance as well as cancer. Unfortunately, chronic diseases are one of the most common causes of death in the world, and they mostly affect young and middle-aged people.
Modification of broadly understood eating behavior is crucial both in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. It is well known that dietary interventions effectively support the treatment of diseases such as hypertension or type II diabetes, and in many cases may even replace pharmacotherapy. To date, the best-documented models of nutrition with a broad therapeutic spectrum are the Mediterranean diet and Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension(DASH). Although the preventive and therapeutic potential is best demonstrated by studies on the influence of holistic dietary regimens, the role of selected food products and biologically active food ingredients are also invaluable.
We invite you to share the results of your research and opinions on the impact of food ingredients or overall nutritional regimens on the development, prevention, and treatment of chronic diseases in the Special Issue "Dietary Intake and Nutritional Support for Patients with Chronic Diseases".
