    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    Nutrition and diet play a vital role in the health care system. Modern diets with high energy density and low nutrient diversity have been linked to acquired metabolic syndromes. The human diet is made up of a variety of components, including nutrients, which provide the raw materials for multiple metabolic processes in every cell of the body, and non-nutrients. These components and their metabolites can also control gene expression and cellular function through a variety of mechanisms. Some of these elements are beneficial, while others are toxic.

    According to research, persistent disruption of nutrient metabolism and/or energy homeostasis, whether caused by nutrient deficiency or excess, causes cellular stress, which leads to metabolic dysregulation and tissue damage, and eventually to the development of acquired metabolic syndromes. Extrinsic factors (e.g., food, xenobiotics, environment), intrinsic factors (e.g., sex, age, gene variations), and host/microbiota interaction all influence metabolism, modifying the risk of developing various acquired metabolic diseases. It is also becoming clear that eating diets high in nutrient diversity but low in energy density may be the key to promoting and maintaining optimal health.

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed.
    Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent on email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
    Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
