Polyphenols and chronic disease risk: epidemiological perspectives

Ute Nöthlings Bonn Polyphenols 2018Prof. Ute Nöthlings, Professor for Nutritional Epidemiology at the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences, Bonn University, will present an overview over recent epidemiological studies investigating associations between polyphenol exposure and chronic disease risk during the 12th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Bonn Polyphenols 2018 which will be held at the University of Bonn, Germany in September 25-28, 2018.

Epidemiological studies play a role in exploring associations of polyphenol and polyphenol-rich food intake and risk of chronic diseases, and ultimately back evidence based dietary recommendations. Evidence exists showing inverse associations for diabetes mellitus type 2, cardiovascular diseases, cancer and neurodegenerative disease, but heterogeneity exists. Important aspects when evaluating the evidence are study designs and assessment of exposure. The talk will give an overview over recent evidence, with a focus on specific methodological perspectives.
