The aim of "Food in health and disease" journal is to present scientific and professional papers in the field of nutrition and dietetics, and thereby to promote healthy lifestyle and healthy nutrition. Publishing of the journal is a logical sequence of the many activities carried out by a group of scientists from the Faculty of Pharmacy and Faculty of Technology, University of Tuzla. These activities are reflected in the organization of seminars and symposia entitled "Food and Health" since 2007 to 2012, where, next to national experts, a number of researchers from abroad were engaged. The journal is focused on the area of nutrition and dietetics, i. e. the effects of food ingredients and diet on the human body. It is taken into account that the nutritionism is based on the chemistry of food, metabolic and nutritional biochemistry, but is also relied on other disciplines such as food technology, pharmacy, medicine, agronomy, psychology, economics, etc. Modern nutritionism takes into account only evidence based claims. On the other hand, dietetics is more focused on the influence of diet and lifestyle on human health. Today, many other disciplines related to nutrition and dietetics are differentiated, where dietotherapy, focused on the treatment of eating, should be specifically emphasized. Nutrition is an important factor that affects health and quality of life. Today are present different problems related to diet and lifestyle. There are many modern systemic diseases in whose causes diet participates significantly. In this regard, the occurrence of metabolic syndrome, e.g. diabetes mellitus II, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cardiovascular diseases, anemia, osteoporosis and other diseases is very often. Hypersensitivity to food in the form of allergy, intolerance and aversion is more and more present, as well as eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia and cachexia. Many states of disease may be treated with nutritional therapy, and proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles are good prerequisites for the prevention of most of these diseases.
