The Milieu Intérieur is very enthusiastic in collaborating with the NutriNet Santé study. Nutrinet study is a prospective cohort to study the relationship between nutrition and health and determinants of dietary patterns and nutritional status. It was launched in May 2009. Milieu Intérieur and NutriNet Santé study will be analysing the nutrition and dietary profile of the Milieu Interieur cohort.
NutriNet-santé is an observational prospective cohort study conducted on a large sample size (> 500 000 registered subjects with the objective to include 300 000 participants) followed for a sufficiently long period (10 years).
The primary objectives of the NutriNet-santé study are to study the relationship between food intake, nutrients, dietary behaviour and mortality as well as the incidence of chronic diseases: cancers, CVD, obesity and overweight, type II diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, metabolic syndromes as well as on ageing and the quality of life.
The secondary objectives are to:
- study the relationship between food intake, nutrients, dietary behaviour, physical activity and other pathologies (diseases such as thyroid, digestive, rhumatism, skin problems with a significant social and economic impact);
- study the determinants (sociologic, biologic, economic and cultural), the dietary behaviour, the nutritional status and the health status of French population;
- study the relationship between food intake, nutrients and dietary behaviour and biological and clinical markers;
- evaluate the impact of public health actions, especially in the field of nutrition (in term of perception, efficacy, knowledge)
The huge amount of the collected information and the big sample size will enable the “NutriNet-Santé” study to build a gigantic cohort data base covering the nutrition and health of the French population.
The NutriNet-santé Cohort is coordinated by the Nutritional Epidemiology Research Team (Joint Research Unit U1153 Inserm/Inra/Cnam/Univ. Paris 13).
