Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Although it is traditional in today’s medicine to view pharmaceutical therapy as the primary treatment option for cardiovascular disease (CVD), nutritional strategies remain as a powerful tool to not only treat but also delay or even prevent the occurence of CVD. Nutritional supplements, lifestyle and behavioural change as well as dietary strategies are underappreciated despite significant evidence that these procedures can effectively address hypertension, ischemic heart disease, cardiomyopathies, arteriosclerosis and may other cardiovascular ailments. Conversely, it is just as important to recognize that poor nutritional behaviours and unhealthy diets can generate very undesirable outcomes in our cardiovascular health.

The purpose of this special issue on "A Vehicle for Cardiovascular Translational Research: Nutrition" is to highlight recent advances in specific nutritional strategies which have been found to impact CVD, both positively and negatively. Our goal is to return the focus of our scientific attention with both basic research and clinical trial findings in nutrition in order to re-emphasize their potential to be eventually translated into information that can lead our populations to longer, healthier lives.

Prof. Dr. Grant N. Pierce and Prof. Dr. Bram Ramjiawan
