About this Research Topic
Despite the above expectations regarding Japanese diets, epidemiological studies on human subjects of Japanese diets are considerably less common than those on Mediterranean diets. Epidemiological evidence about the benefits of Japanese diets on health and nutritional outcomes is needed.
This Research Topic will feature articles regarding epidemiological studies of Japanese diets on health and nutritional outcomes. For example, we welcome submissions of papers on the following research topics:
- The impact of the Japanese diet on healthy aging and longevity.
- The effect of ingredients (food items or nutritional components) of the Japanese diet on health and disease.
- Nutritional characteristics of the Japanese diet.
- The definition (components) of Japanese dietary pattern.
- Different dietary patterns among the Japanese population in different social contexts.
- Generalization (external validity) of Japanese diet to non-Japanese populations.
Keywords: Japanese Diet, Japanese Dietary Pattern, Asian Dietary Patterns, Nutritional Characteristics, Epidemiology, Clinical Trials, Soybeans, Green Tea, Seaweeds
