“Dietary Impact on Health: Scoping the Possibilities”
Combining research on plant-based diets and various health outcomes, this collection serves to explore the relationship between food choices and personal, population, and planetary health. The comprehensive reviews, meta-analyses, and systematic analyses presented here draw from a wide range of studies, including the Global Burden of Disease Study, and prospective cohorts in various countries.
Covering health effects associated with dietary risk factors, this content highlights the global conversation surrounding dietary choices and their impact on widespread health issues. From cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes to all-cause mortality, ongoing research has centered on the effects of food groups and protein sources on human health.
In line with the broader conversation, studies also delve into the impact of diet substitution, including the replacement of red meat with alternative protein sources. With an extensive review of studies spanning various dietary choices and health outcomes, the research presented in this collection aims to provide a holistic view of the complex web of connections between food, health, and well-being.
In order to outline the best practices for research and meta-analysis, this collection also includes recommendations for assessing studies of interventions, addressing bias in meta-analyses, and interpreting the results. It aims to enhance the overall understanding of the nuanced relationship between diet and health, as well as to bridge the gap between research findings and practical, evidence-based dietary recommendations for individuals and communities.
