Nutritional Sciences Research Areas and Disciplines
Current research in Canada includes studying the link between diet and cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and aging. The effects of improper nutrition on pediatric development (eg. cognitive functions, height) are also studied.
The biochemical and physiological function of food components such as fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins are also studied, and this knowledge is applied to the creation of appropriate guidelines for food label standards. Research into the effectiveness of this labeling is also underway, to determine whether current labeling practices are sufficient, accurate, and proper.
Public health-related studies such as epidemiology of nutrition, obesity, poverty, and strategies for effective public health campaigns are also studied.
