Impact of Dietary Pattern on Human LifeQuality and Life Expectancy: A Mini-Review

  title={Impact of Dietary Pattern on Human LifeQuality and Life Expectancy: A Mini-Review},
  author={Ceren Gezer},
During the lifespan, there are multiple factors influence the longevity including genotype, metabolism, physiology, sociodemographic and environmental factors, nutritional and lifestyle habits. Nutrition during the life time has an effect on the health status. Dietary indexes, certain dietary patterns and dietary guidelines have been used for analysing dietary pattern and life expectancy relationship in many studies. Dietary pattern has an important effect on longevity. The cohort study results…

Lifestyle and Cultural Factors Related to Longevity Among Older Adults in the Northeast of Thailand
Lifestyle and Buddhist Thai culture relating to longevity, and activities of daily living (ADL), body mass index (BMI), and mental health evaluated, influenced longevity and well-being.
The Different Pattern of Food Consumption between Local Farmers and Transmigrant Farmers in the Border Area of Papua, Indonesia
As a component in the food and nutrition system, which determined by the quantity and quality of food, food consumption is an important priority to improve the quality of human resources. This study
Adsorption Removal of Eriochrome Black T (EBT) and Rose Bengal (RB) from Aqueous Solutions Using Bio-Sorbents Combination
Adsorption of eriochrome black T (EBT) and rose bengal (RB) mixture from aqueous solutions was investigated using a mixture of low-cost biosorbents – 50 % of raw state potato peels and 50 % of raw


What are the roles of calorie restriction and diet quality in promoting healthy longevity?
Does the Mediterranean diet predict longevity in the elderly? A Swedish perspective
It can reasonably state that a higher adherence to a Mediterranean diet pattern, especially by consuming wholegrain cereals, foods rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, and a limited amount of alcohol, predicts increased longevity in the elderly.
Dietary quality, lifestyle factors and healthy ageing in Europe: the SENECA study.
A healthy lifestyle at older ages is positively related to a reduced mortality risk and to a delay in the deterioration in health status, and this postponement of the onset of major morbidity is likely to go together with a compressed cumulative morbidity.
Dietary quality and lifestyle factors in relation to 10-year mortality in older Europeans: the SENECA study.
The single and combined effects of three healthy lifestyle behaviors-nonsmoking, being physically active, and having a high-quality diet-on survival were investigated among older people in the SENECA Study and underscore the importance of a healthy lifestyle, including multiple lifestyle factors, and the maintenance of it with advancing age.
Caloric Restriction, the Traditional Okinawan Diet, and Healthy Aging
Investigation of archived population data on the elderly cohort of Okinawans for evidence of CR lends epidemiologic support for phenotypic benefits of CR in humans and is consistent with the well‐known literature on animals with regard to CR phenotypes and healthy aging.
Diet Quality Is Associated with All-Cause Mortality in Adults Aged 65 Years and Older123
The HDS was not a predictor of mortality is this population, whereas the RFS and the MDS were both associated with all-cause mortality, suggesting simple measures of diet quality using food-based indicators can be useful predictors of longevity.

The rationale for studying dietary patterns is described, quantitative methods for analysing dietary patterns and their reproducibility and validity are discussed, and the available evidence regarding the relationship between major Dietary patterns and the risk of cardiovascular disease is discussed.
A prospective study of diet quality and mortality in women.
It is suggested that a dietary pattern characterized by consumption of foods recommended in current dietary guidelines is associated with decreased risk of mortality in women.

More studies are needed to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of calorie restriction in humans and to characterize new markers of aging/longevity that can assist clinicians in predicting mortality and morbidity of the general population.
