Special Issue Information
Public health today is defined as the art and science of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health through the organised efforts of society. Nutrition, on the other hand, is the science that studies how the body uses energy from food to maintain and grow, analysing the processes by which it ingests, digests, absorbs, transports, utilises and extracts nutrients essential for life, and their interaction with health and disease.
Therefore, public health nutrition and diet is the science that studies the relationship between diet and health and provides the basis for the design, implementation and evaluation of nutritional interventions at community and population levels to improve the health status of populations.
There is currently a need for up-to-date research linking these two concepts. Research whose results can be applied to public health in the social and geographical context of a community or a group of individuals in order to enhance and improve nutritional status is valuable.
In this sense, we consider a Special Issue "Nutrition, Diet and Public Health. Assessment in Different Individuals and Groups" in the journal IJERPH to be appropriate.
This Issue will incorporate multidisciplinary research, from all points of view, dedicated to nutritional assessment in various population groups, as well as its possible health and public health repercussions.
All types of manuscripts are encouraged, from rigorous randomised clinical trials to pragmatic community-based designs. Therefore, interventions related to diet, dietary habits and their relationship with the nutritional status of a population are acceptable. It is understood that submissions will often use multidisciplinary and collaborative research. Original research papers are welcome, as are systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
