Journal Maturitas publishes position statement on diet and health in midlife and beyond
Date:12/11/2012

Amsterdam, December 11, 2012 Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today the publication of a position statement by the European Menopause and Andropause Society (EMAS) in journal Maturitas.

As we live longer, ensuring a healthy diet becomes a growing public health issue. There is increasing evidence that life-style factors, such as nutrition, physical activity, smoking and alcohol consumption have a profound modifying effect on the epidemiology of most major chronic conditions affecting midlife health. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is best prevented or managed by restricting the total amount of carbohydrate in the diet and by deriving carbohydrate energy from whole-grain cereals, fruits and vegetables. Obese elderly people should therefore be encouraged to lose weight. The substitution of saturated and trans-fatty acids by mono-unsaturated and omega-3 fatty acids found in olive oil and oily fish are important dietary interventions for the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Adequate protein, calcium and vitamin D intake should be ensured for the prevention of osteoporotic fractures. A diet rich in vitamin E, folate, B12 and omega-3 fatty acids may be protective against cognitive decline.
