Precision nutrition (PN) considers multiple individual-level and environmental characteristics or variables, in order to better inform dietary strategies and interventions for optimizing health, including managing obesity and metabolic disorders. Here, we review the evidence on potential mechanisms - including ones to identify those most likely to respond - that can be leveraged in the development of PN interventions addressing obesity. We conducted a review of the literature and included laboratory, animal, and human studies evaluating biochemical and genetic data, completed and ongoing clinical trials, and public programs in this review...

The Mediterranean-Dietary Approaches to Systolic Hypertension diet intervention for neurodegenerative delay (MIND) diet seems a promising approach to preserve brain function during ageing. Previous systematic reviews have demonstrated benefits of the MIND diet for cognition and dementia, though an update is needed. Additionally, other outcomes relevant to brain ageing have not been summarized. Therefore, this systematic review aims to give an up-to-date and complete overview on human studies that examined the MIND diet in relation to brain ageing outcomes in adults aged ≥40y...

The human gut microbiota is composed of bacteria (microbiota or microbiome), fungi (mycobiome), viruses, and archaea, but most of the research is primarily focused on the bacterial component of this ecosystem. Besides bacteria, fungi have been shown to play a role in host health and physiological functions. However, studies on mycobiota composition during infancy, the factors that might shape infant gut mycobiota, and implications to child health and development are limited. In this review we discuss the factors likely shaping gut mycobiota, interkingdom interactions, associations to child health outcomes, and highlight the gaps in our current knowledge of this ecosystem...

Supporting optimal newborn nutrition and the positive maternal-infant relationship, while encouraging safe sleep practices, are essential components of maternal and newborn care in the hospital setting following birth. Breastfeeding is widely recognized as best practice to support the nutritional needs and well-being of the infant, and recommendations have been developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to encourage and successfully support breastfeeding efforts prior to hospital discharge...

This perspectives piece analyzes the Barbie movie and its impact on its viewership. In contrast to prior research demonstrating that images of Barbie objectified girls, lowered self esteem, and promoted body dysmorphia, with social media focus on "Fistpiration' as well as "Thinspiration" amplifying the negative effect, the Barbie movie may have more positive impact than one might predict. As gleaned from an informal survey of patients, parents and peers, the messages of the Barbie movie include a mix of body positivity, recognition of the impact of depression and other aspects of mental health, critique of the perceived societal patriarchy, and a message of empowerment for girls, women, and people otherwise unrecognized...

Through diverse roles, zinc determines a greater number of critical life functions than any other single micronutrient. Beyond the well-recognized importance of zinc for child growth and resistance to infections, zinc has numerous specific roles covering the regulation of glucose metabolism, and growing evidence links zinc deficiency with increased risk of diabetes and cardiometabolic disorders. Zinc nutriture is thus vitally important to health across the life course. Zinc deficiency is also one of the most common forms of micronutrient malnutrition globally...

Around the world, paid work without appropriate structural support, is a key barrier to optimal breastfeeding practices. To better protect, promote, and support optimal breastfeeding practices among working women in Africa, this scoping review sought to understand how paid work influences infant feeding practices in the first six months of life and what support women need to manage work and optimal infant feeding practices. We systematically searched PubMed, Scopus, Global Health, and CINAHL Plus, screened 2,436 abstracts, and reviewed 322 full-text articles using Covidence for review and charting...

Non-communicable diseases (NCD) are a leading cause of death and disability worldwide, with higher risk of death in low- and middle-income countries. Diet and excess weight are risk factors for NCDs. In Mexico, the prevalence of overweight and obesity increased dramatically in the last 30 years and is among the highest in the world. To address this public health problem, governments and public health professionals have several policy instruments available. In this study, we present the policy instruments currently approved in Mexico, which include fiscal, informational, and authoritative tools that aim to improve the food environment and promote healthy behaviours (taxes, school food guidelines, front of pack labelling, marketing regulations and dietary guidelines)...

Timing of eating (TOE) and energy intake (TOEI) has important implications for chronic disease risk beyond diet quality. The 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) recommended developing consistent terminology to address the lack of TOE/TOEI standardization. The primary objective of this methodological systematic review was to characterize the conceptualization and assessment of TOE/TOEI within the chronic disease literature (PROSPERO registration number: CRD42021236621). Literature searches in CINAHL Plus, Embase, PubMed, and Scopus were limited to English-language publications from 2000-August 2022...

The risk of depression and anxiety are higher in people with metabolic conditions, but whether dietary approaches which are central to the management of metabolic conditions, can also improve depression and anxiety is uncertain. The primary aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate the effects of dietary interventions on depression and anxiety in adults with metabolic conditions. The secondary aims were to evaluate the effects of hypocaloric and isocaloric dietary interventions on these outcomes...

Although a posteriori dietary patterns (DPs) naturally reflect actual dietary behavior in a population, their specificity limits generalizability. Among other issues, the absence of a standardized approach to analysis have further hindered discovery of genuinely reproducible DPs across studies from the same/similar populations. A systematic review on a posteriori DPs from principal component analysis or exploratory factor analysis (EFA) across study populations from Italy provides the basis to explore assessment and drivers of DP reproducibility in a case study of epidemiological interest...

Choline is essential for proper liver, muscle, brain, lipid metabolism, cellular membrane composition and repair. Understanding genetic determinants of circulating choline metabolites can help identify new determinants of choline metabolism, requirements, and their link to disease endpoints. We conducted a scoping review to identify studies assessing the association of genetic polymorphisms on circulating choline and choline-related metabolite levels, and subsequent associations with health outcomes. This study follows the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses statement scoping review extension...

BACKGROUND: Migraine is a highly prevalent neurological disorder, with prevalence rates ranging from 9% to 18% worldwide. Current pharmacological prophylactic strategies for migraine have limited efficacy and acceptability, with relatively low response rates of 40%-50% and limited safety profiles. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)/docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are considered to be promising therapeutic agents for migraine prophylaxis. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this network meta-analysis (NMA) was to compare the efficacy and acceptability of various doses of EPA/DHA and other current FDA-approved or guideline-recommended prophylactic pharmacological interventions for migraine...

Evidence of associations between ultra-processed foods (UPF) and increased risk of cardiovascular disease is emerging, but it is unclear how much this is influenced by the methodology used to assess the UPF intake or by the level of consumption. We conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate 1) the association between UPF consumption and risk of diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and obesity, using prospective cohort studies; 2) the differential associations depending on the methodology used to assess UPF intake and the level of UPF consumption and 3) the quality of evidence using the NutriGrade scoring system...
