Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Nutrition and lifestyle are key to preventing weight gain and reducing susceptibility to infections such as COVID-19. This Special Issue will accept submissions of both original research manuscripts and review articles focusing on how nutrition alone or together with lifestyle is able to prevent obesity and systemic/local inflammation. Articles exploring inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome and metabolic disorders will be considered for publication in this Special Issue. Articles focusing on the interactions between systemic inflammation and local inflammation (gastrointestinal tract, brain, liver, adipose tissue, bone, etc.) that provide new insights into preventive and therapeutic targets for obesity are also very welcome.
