Hey everyone, I am a plant-based researcher/PhD student currently studying at the University of Central Lancashire.
This specific study is related to Palm Oil and Palmitic Acid consumption in plant-based diets, although all diets are welcome as to allow for a comparison.
The PhD is titled: Palmitic acid (16:0) consumption in plant-based diets and its effect on metabolic health.
Study is UK only.
All diets are welcome.
This specific experiment will help determine the intake of PO/PA across the UK.
What will happen if I take part?
As a participant in this study, you will need to have access to Microsoft Word (or alternative) and an email account:
Complete a questionnaire designed to collect some general information about your anthropometry, physical activity and lifestyle, dietary habits and awareness on palm oil.
Complete a diet diary stating about your dietary intake for a total of 12 days, including all meals, snacks and beverages (including alcohol):
a. Week 1 - Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
b. Week 6 - Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
c. Week 12 - Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Ethical approval was obtained from the University of Central Lancashire. Consent Form and Participant Information Sheet required to be read and signed before participating.
I have surveyed and collected data of 100 family about demographic, socioeconomic, nutrition knowledge and anthropometric data. Now I want to publishe in research paper.
I need to analysie my data about nutrition habits. My aim is to examine differences regarding BMI. Therefore, I split population into three group <5th, from5thto85th, >85thpercentile of BMI. I calculate BMI on the entire population of 7th grade children (perhaps, I need to calculate BMI for boys and girls separately). The example of data is attached.
The questions are:
- Should I calculate BMI for each gender?
- How to provide meaningful research? It is hard to explaine findings using large number of groups. My data set is large, therefore almost every chi sqare is <.05.
- Could Pearson residuals be a soultion.
- Any insight is wellcome.
Poverty is a multidimensional concept and the dimensions of poverty are far beyond inadequate income, for example, poor health and nutrition, low education and skills, inadequate livelihoods, bad housing conditions, social exclusion and lack of participation. Money-based measures are but deprivations in other dimensions need to be considered because households facing multiple deprivations are likely to be in worse situations than income poverty measures suggest. I wish to know whether this index can be constructed at village level and what are the indicators and sub-indicator can be included in such an Index?
Researchers will use the laboratory for experiments involving nutrition, heat stress, and animal health
If you participate in any kind of sports or athletics whether as an amateur or as a professional player, kindly spend a few minutes to fill this international research survey questionnaire "Lifestyle of Athletes during the COVID-19 lockdown: Nutrition, Psychological Status, and Sleep Behaviours".
I would be grateful for your answers.

Please help to circulate this questionnaire, which is part of a big international study (you can find below the questionnaire in different languages):
The project has the collaboration of researchers (including sport scientists) from 6 continents.
Globally, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has transformed people’s day-to-day life. The world’s sporting calendar, recreational and professional, is almost unrecognisable. Athletes have seen access to training facilities and/or the ability to even leave their homes (i.e., to run, cycle) severely restricted, if not removed entirely. This questionnaire will investigate how the lockdown is affecting (or has affected) athletes’ lifestyle (including nutritional, psychological and sleep aspects) and how athletes are responding (have responded) to the pandemic.
Why participate in this project? Project outcomes will be used for research purposes and to inform current/future guidelines for athletes, coaches, sports scientists and (potentially) policymakers. It will reveal what has happened globally, across every inhabited continent, during the pandemic relative to athletes and their training practices. Your participation will contribute to improving the current and future lifestyle of athletes.
Target population: Elite or sub-elite athletes (amateur or professional from both genders, including Para athletes) from any country that is experiencing, or has experienced, a lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Privacy, confidentiality, and Data security : All responses will be de-identified and processed anonymously (you will not be asked to provide us with your name, ensuring total anonymity). No other identifying information, including IP address will be recorded. At the end of the study, the data will be destroyed in compliance with international regulations. Precautions will be taken to control access to all data. Only authorized individuals (principal investigators) will have access to the dataset. We’re minimizing the risk of breach of confidentiality by collecting and storing the data anonymously, and by saving data with password protection. This international survey has been approved by the Ethics Committee of Imam Khomeini International University.
Results : The results of this project will be used for scientific publications where it will not possible to identify any of the participants. To inquire about the results of the survey, please email the principal investigator. For any inquiries, please feel free to contact the principal investigator: Morteza Taheri E-mail: email@example.com
I am looking for references on nutrition in chimpanzees and their oral health. What is the "normal" diet of chimpanzees and how does it affect oral health? Are there comparative studies of wild and captive animals. Do they show differences in oral health and are there studies on the oral microbiome?
From embriology, we can learn so many important things related to the development of embrio, fetus system organs. About the development of endoderm, mesoderm, and ectoderm. About the closure of neural tube, formation of the cardiovascular systems, etc.
Nutritional science also very well developed to support the pregnancies, the mother and the baby. For example about the importance of ferrum tablet, about the folic acid to support neural system of the embrio, and so on.
It is expected that if the nutrition could be adequatly comsumed by the mother, and then the mother and also her baby will be healthy.
Many defects could be anticipated not occurs after the baby born.
For example : spina bifida, tetralogy Fallot, anencephaly, and the others.
So I think that it must be important if there are any guidliness corellate about what nutrition must be eaten week per week during pregnancy according to embriology and nutrition science.
A plant-based diet is a diet based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes while a vegan diet is strictly against all animal products. Whats your openion about PBD and vegan and their effects on our health?
Home gardening is the basic unit of food security, it can help in maintaining food security from the grass-root level, whey the scientific team and scholars are not paying attention to it what are the prospects and challenges in this regard.
perhaps the most useful aspect of epigenetic processes is that they are readily reversible. Unlike genetic effects that also play a role in cancer and aging, epigenetic aberrations can be relatively easily corrected. One of the most widespread approaches to epigenetic alterations in cancer and ageing is dietary control. now, I would like to know more about the types and mechanisms of that nutrition that have a positive impact on epigenetic alteration during cancer???
I'm interested in finding journals, reviews, and online research portals where critical reviews and replication studies are conducted on commercial products and books in the dieting and wellness domains. What can you recommend?
Let's break the barrier of specialization in research. What do you think about indomie? Is it healthy in nutrition or not?
How long will it take for arthropod ingredients to appear on our menu?
Recently, Nestle has released food for dogs and cats, in which, in addition to the usual chicken, they added chopped fly larvae. And no, the global corporation does not save on cats. Livestock is one of the drivers of climate change, and replacing cows with insects can reduce its turnover. Some insect products have been on the market for a long time. Tell us who you can try and what sensations to expect?
I've written a narrative review of medical and nutrition interventions supporting glycemic control in the hospitalized nutrition support patient (on enteral nutrition or parenteral nutrition). The article is to be published in the journal "Support Line" (the official journal of the Dietitians in Nutrition Support practice group). They've asked that we submit recommendations for peer reviewers--please let me know if you are interested!
Used to work with NutWin Software (UNIFESP, Sao Paulo, Brazil) like nutritonal software, it seems to have an installation problem (not solved).
For this reason I am looking for other differents nutrition softwares. Relatively easy to work and follow subjects and bibliography validation if could be possible.
Thank you in advance
When we grow older, it is seems that we are more easily to have constipation. What are your suggested preventive measures in treating this condition?
As I have the physiological condition of anorexia nervosa/morbid obesity, I have to adopt the anorexic Luigi Cornaro diet of eat-but-little. And I think my problem of constipation is a result of my eating habit.
My solution for this problem is, don't wait for the spontaneous bowel movements, try to have two or more bowel movements within one day, one in the early morning when I just get up, the other one in the later afternoon to evening. In this way, I can effectively prevent constipation.
How ultra-processed foods modify and command our food preferences?
It responds to the growing interest in ultra-processed foods among policy makers, academic researchers, health professionals, journalists and consumers concerned to devise policies, investigate dietary patterns, advise people, prepare media coverage, and when buying food and checking labels in shops or at home. Ultra-processed foods are defined within the NOVA classification system, which groups foods according to the extent and purpose of industrial processing.
Processes enabling the manufacture of ultra-processed foods include the fractioning of whole foods into substances, chemical modifications of these substances, assembly of unmodified and modified food substances, frequent use of cosmetic additives and sophisticated packaging. Processes and ingredients used to manufacture ultra-processed foods are designed to create highly profitable (low-cost ingredients, long shelf-life, emphatic branding), convenient (ready-to-consume), hyper-palatable products liable to displace all other NOVA food groups, notably unprocessed or minimally processed foods.
A practical way to identify an ultra-processed product is to check to see if its list of ingredients contains at least one item characteristic of the NOVA ultra-processed food group, which is to say, either food substances never or rarely used in kitchens (such as high-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated or interesterified oils, and hydrolysed proteins), or classes of additives designed to make the final product palatable or more appealing (such as flavours, flavour enhancers, colours, emulsifiers, emulsifying salts, sweeteners, thickeners, and anti-foaming, bulking, carbonating, foaming, gelling and glazing agents).
What do you think about that?
Pulp and paper mill sludge waste Or agro-waste, which one substrate best for vermicomposting and after vermicomposting which compost has more nutritive value?
I have data from households, where two types of data were collected:
- A validated questionnaire (Household Dietary Diversity Score (HDDS)), which gives a score between 0 and 12 for each household.
- Anthropometric measurements of all children < 5 years old in each household = a measure of nutritional status for the children.
I now wish to perform a regression analysis with HDDS score as independent variable and the anthropometric measurements as dependent variable.
The challenge is: In some households there were more than one child, which results in more observations of nutritional status than households scores, and the observations for the nutritional status are not independent, as some of the children come from the same household.
One way to g about it, is to take a mean of the nutritional status for all children in one household, but I would rather not do this, as children of different ages are difficult to compare regarding nutrition.
So what do I do to make sure I respect the assumption of independent observation in this analysis?
In case it's just not possible to perform a regression on this data, please feel free to suggest another analysis!
Hope there's someone out there who can help.
All over the world, rates of dementia are expected to rise dramatically over the coming decades. And research continues to suggest that actions that have been taken early can reduce the risk of this disease. There are about 10 million new cases, each year, of dementia, which is a general term for groups of symptoms associated with deterioration of the brain. We know that what we eat can affect our physical health. But it could affect the brain too.
So, it is possible that there is a link between our diet and the risk of the development of dementia? Is there any effective food that can reduce the risk of the development of this disease? How can we reduce the risk of dementia through diet?
All comments and contributions are welcome.
Currently, my area of interest is substance abuse. I am focused on abuse of opioids, marijuana, methamphetamine and cocaine. I would like to look at nutrition habits, comorbidities, especially depression in people who abuse or misuse those drugs. If you know of any recent articles (2017 through 2021) written on the subject I would really appreciate having a look at them.
In the literature we can find research on the relationships: (1) emotional state and disease; (2) nutrition and disease. Can the two factors be considered together?
For example, if a person watches TV while eating - could this be a reason to get sick in the future?
As part of a PhD project, we are thinking of carrying out an intervention around the use of nutrition labels (and/or claims) in the UK. The ultimate aim is to increase the knowledge of the participants on the healthiness of foods and to enable them to make healthier choices. We do not have a specific age group in mind yet. Does anybody have any suggestions? If you do, please share. Many thanks.
Recently, I was in a workshop concerning sports nutrition, the person delivering the information stated that there is no proof that detox diet exists and is effective, her statement blew my mind, as she claimed that a body is able to detoxify its self naturally!, I was definitely against her statement, because if it was true then why there is a huge amount of cancer diagnosed patients, due to the chemicals or wrong diets or many other causes related to foods and medication, many studies have shown that customized detox diet plans are really effective, and in my clinic personally I have followed customized detox diet plans and the blood tests showed amazing improvements on all aspects, I need the aid in my statement and thoughts against her, any study, medical proof or so would be so helpful.
We are about to develop nutrition in emergency standard operating procedures for our country. I am thinking of incorparation the COVID - 19 pandemic issues and other recent emergencies in it. What are your suggestions?
Did anyone develop nutrition in emergency SoPs recently?

Could you please go through my questionnaire (please refer the attachment below) and recommend me the future improvements
Ex: New questions can be asked
Questions that are not relevant to the study
Any other risk factors can be checked in the study etc.
Note : The questionnaire is based on "Metagenics - Genetic potential through nutrition" organization's Cardiovascular risk assessment questionnaire
Among the loss mechanisms through which applied fertilizer N is lost from the soil-plant system - nitrate leaching, ammonia volatilization and escape as nitrous oxide gas, which is the most important in terms of N nutrition of crops and pollution of the environment? Also, which loss mechanism is being the most studied by researchers all over the world?
I am struggling with my food science lab report, and although I completed the experiment I am still clueless about the Maillard reaction.
I have found a positive correlation between glucose concentration and absorbance and can’t understand why and what this actually means. Any help will be appreciated
What are the global nutrition targets endorsed by WHO since 2012 ?
I don't know what is meaning by the target , or which population groups are they.
Thx for advance
My name is Adam Collins and I am a postgraduate student from University of Westminster, studying Sport & Exercise Nutrition MSc.
I have come across the study you are a part of called 'COVID-19 home confinement negatively impacts social participation and life satisfaction: a worldwide multicenter study.'
I am currently designing my Major Project which is looking at the biopsychosocial effects of COVID-19 on amateur football players, which involves various validated questionnaires within an online survey.
I would like to use the SSPQL (Short Social Participation Questionnaire for Lockdowns) for the social dynamic within my survey. However, I would like to make some modifications (e.g. changing questions, omitting questions) so that it fits appropriately to my aims and objectives.
I am emailing to ask whether there is any room for modifications and/or omitting questions from the SSPQL? If so, would you be able to guide me on how to go about this so that I modify the questionnaire without damaging the original integrity of the questionnaire in terms of still being able to produce both valid and reliable results?

I'm assessing the nutritional adequacy of sportspeople. The only issue is that the recommended values are not one specific value. They often have a range. For example, the target for protein intake is between 1.7 to 2.0 g/kg of body mass per day. As I can't put a range of values into the test value box how would I go about this? Should I do one test for the lower value and one for the higher, or one the middle value? Sorry if this seems simple but I haven't had much experience with statistics. Thanks, Everyone.
There is some misinformation and myths about the benefits of eating figs and olives, do you have information about studies dealing with this topic?
In this situations of carona pandemic what would be the role of Nutrition and nutritionists to combat this ?? Plz enlight if some approches can be made??
I am nutritionist and I am interested in aspects of zebrafish nutrition. I would like to know if there are established nutritional macronutrients requirements to zebrafish.

What are the nutritional advices during covid-19 pandemic in individuals before occurrence of disease and in patients after suffering from disease.
Flower Bulbs are originally situated in the Near East like Turkey u.a. - they are adapted to hot summers and wet winters / springs.
What are the most important thing to ensure that these flower bulbs are perennial and flower each year after another:
- N nutrition
- K nutrition
- P nutrition
- good watering in winter
- good watering in spring
- non-watering in summer
- hot summers
- low temperature in autumn
- low temperature in winter
- rising temperature in spring
- planted not to deep
- planted not to high
- less concurrence through weeds in spring
- less condurrence through weeds in summer
- non shade in spring / direct sun
- lifted after wilt + replanted in autumn (avoid too much humidity in summer)
I am doing text mining on the performance on research for development interventions in low income countries. I need some standard dictionaries and typologies to map the content of the paper in a standardized way. Can you the international standards you are aware of? Thanks in advance.
I want to publish two articles about nutrition and public health on Scopus indexed (quartile 1 or 2) below 500 USD. Anyone suggest me some journal on my topics.
I'm looking at nutritional foodstuffs and games/activities to slow down dementia. As part of this I have been making foods high in antioxidants and balanced with nuts, dark chocolate etc. and trying them out on my self for taste, construction etc. before working on detailed studies post finding some basic designs.
I have regular blood tests and my potassium has risen to 5.3 which, excluding certain medical conditions, leads me to nutrition as that is the only thing I have changed as my diet is very high in antioxidants. I know that too much can lead to "reductive stress"/"oxidise stress" but there is limited information on this from nutrition induced as studies are in the main from injecting mice.
If I am right in my logic that too much antioxidant creates a high potassium level than I am going to have to go back a few steps and reconsider my basic design, as always, safety first.
I am looking for suggestions about biomedical "open access" databases, similar to the UK Biobank, to obtain information about nutrition, physical activity and energy balance?
I really appreciate any help you can provide.
As a kinesiologist, I am often asked to give advice regards nutrition to my friends and collegues, and also create nutrition programs designed especially for them. Personally, I think I shouldn't do that and involve myself into the field in which I'm not categorized in and educated enough. Also, I see a lot of "fitness trainers" who graduated from 3 months course and now they're calling themselfs experts not just in fitness but also in nutrition. I think playing with this is really dangerous, because everyone is so individual and special in their own unique way and you could really make huge mistakes if you are not well educated.
What do you think about this problem in the world? What are the solutions? And also, what are the best methods in creating individual nutrition programs?
In most of the food analysis procedures, before the chemical analysis of vegetables/foods are oven-dried at 50-60 centigrade temperature. Does it affect the nutrition content in the sample?
Thanks! Any help is appreciated!
WHO recommends a fat intake of no less than 15% of the daily caloric requirements (https://www.who.int/dietphysicalactivity/publications/trs916/en/).
However, imagine a catastrophic situation in which a population somehow lost access to fat-rich foods for several years, while still having access to a good supply of carbohydrates, protein and micronutrients. Is there a point at which nutritional problems would arise if the consumption of fat was near zero? Would people survive if this was the case? what if the consumption was 5% or 10% of the total caloric intake?
Could the body survive via its own capacity to synthesize fats from carbohydrates?
-Please assume that essential fatty acid consumption (linoleic and alpha linoleic) is covered in this scenario-
I am searching for background information on Peruvian food culture from the perspective of ethnobotany and health and nutrition.
I'm working on a RCTs study on the impact of nutrition training on crop diversity of small farmers. We will train them on nutrition and observe the changes in crop diversity and their diet.
We do randomize at village level.
We will check how it is different across seasons: lean and abundant. So that, we will collect two rounds of baseline and end line according to the two seasons, and we train them in between.
The two seasons are only 2 months different.
Right now I find the treatment effect by running the following regression:
Yi = β0 + β1T1 + β2X+ β3S + β4S*T + β6V + µi
Yi: Outcome indicators of all households in treated villages and control villages in both end-line rounds
β1: Treatment effect
X: Household characteristics
S: Seasonality dummies (S=0: lean season, S=1: superfluous season)
V: village dummies
However, I am not sure about my estimator. Does anyone have any idea on this?
Thank you so much.
I am using ENA/WHO anthro analyser for plotting nutrition Z score normal distribution curves but each plot with reference WHO curve is plotted seperately. For eg: 1st graph is WHZ scores at baseline status with WHO ref curve and 2nd graph is WHZ scores at endline status. I want to show curves of both baseline and endline with WHO reference curve in same plot. I have tried but apart from minitab I couldnt find others but minitab cant plot WHO reference curve simultaneously.
Pls suggest tutorial for this plot.
