Special Issue "Relationship between Nutrition and Respiratory Disease"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 May 2018
Lung disease is the fourth leading cause of death. Lung health is directly impacted by our environment, which includes our diet. We have evolved to live in an oxygen-rich, and now pollutant-ladened, environment. This challenges our anti-oxidant defenses, which rely on exogenous dietary sources and enzymatic pathways. Nutrition impacts lung growth and development and has the potential to prevent and aid in the treatment of lung disease. This symposium will address several areas of active research, and highlight our current state of knowledge and ongoing controversies. The following areas will be addressed:
- the impact of pre- and post-natal nutrition on lung growth
- the role of breastfeeding, and confounding factors, in the prevention of asthma
- nutritional requirements in the lung transplant recipient
- antioxidants in oxidant-induced lung disease
- the impact of the microbiome in lung health
