Childhood cancer survivors (CCSs) are at increased risk of developing chronic health conditions. This may potentially be reduced by a balanced diet. We aimed to compare dietary intake and diet quality using the Alternative Healthy Eating Index (AHEI) of adult CCSs and the general Swiss population. A food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) was completed...
Article
Full-text available
Several tools assessing diet quality have been developed over the last decades, but their use in public health and clinical practice is limited because they necessitate detailed quantitative assessment of food intake. Our goal was to develop and validate a score (Score d’Alimentation Saine, SCASA) based on a short self-administrated online question...

Mit der Erhebung menuCH liegen erstmals repräsentative Daten zur Ernährung der Schweizer Bevölkerung vor. Sie bestätigen ältere Erkenntnisse, liefern aber insgesamt mehr Details auch zu den kulturellen Unterschieden. Vor allem aber zeigt die menuCH-Studie, dass die Ernährung der Schweizer Bevölkerung unausgewogen ist.

Given the limited amount of current evidence linking total water intake to health outcomes, further data would be needed to guide evidence-based recommendations on water intake. In particular, scientific evidence on the levels of long-term water intake needed to reduce the risk of common chronic diseases is currently limited.

Socioeconomically disadvantaged people are disproportionally more likely to develop obesity and obesity-related diseases. However, it remains unclear to what extent diet quality contributes to socioeconomic inequalities in obesity. We aimed to assess the role of diet quality in the association between socioeconomic status (SES) and obesity. Data or...
