Nutrition Epidemiology and Data Science
We aim to investigate how diet and nutrition affects people’s health at the population level. Nutritional epidemiology is the application of epidemiological methods to the study of how diet is associated with disease by collecting data on and comparing large groups of people.
Findings from nutrition epidemiological studies contribute towards the wide-range evidence-based practice and policy making of diet and health. Large-scale data and advanced statistical methods are used to estimate the association between diet and diseases. Not only do we use existing data, but also we collect data about diet using new technologies.
Research about the feasibility and validity of a web-based dietary assessment system which we developed. The system included various Japanese recipe databases based on observational studies which are advantageous for applying for the exposure assessment in epidemiological studies.
Research about how to reduce salt intake while maintaining Japanese cultural dietary habits.
Acrylamide, a substance consumed through food daily, is a possible cause of cancer. The research focuses on the exposure assessment and cancer risk caused by acrylamide.
Data analyses of long-followed prospective cohort data is important for more understanding of the diet-disease association, and evidence-based practice of diet and health. As a member of JPHC study, we analyze data of diet-disease association for various topics.
Research based on understanding the of proportion and its background of breakfast skipping, specifically for Japanese young adults.
