About the cover

Compelling epidemiological, experimental and clinical data has established that excess salt intake is associated with a higher cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Several prospective cohort studies and clinical outcome trials have recognized the reduced risk of cardiovascular disease associated with a lower salt intake. The major benefits appear to accrue from a reductions in blood pressure as a result of salt restriction. As a result, efforts are being made by several countries to reduce the salt intake from the current level of 9-12 g/day to less than 5-6 g/day. Population based reduction in salt intake is expected to result in a substantial decline in major cardiovascular events, prevention of millions of premature deaths and massive healthcare savings worldwide. Two recent reports have however questioned the validity of severe salt restriction and present persuasive data recommending a restrained restriction (Ref: Shashi K Agarwal. Salt Intake: Cardiovascular Concerns and Controversies. Disease, 2015, 7(15), 1-5).

Disease is an international, multidisciplinary journal of Discovery Publication. Disease Journal publishes original investigations describing the latest research on diseases, epidemics, disease diagnosis treatment and methods of disease control in Plants, Animals and Human beings. In addition to the rigorous peer-review, all original investigations undergo routine statistical review. The journal summarizes current information on every disease. The online and print version of Disease includes interpretive summaries that include supplemental data tables and illustrations of additional figures and photos in color.

The broad range on disease research includes:

  • Plant Diseases

Disease Journal publishes articles and reports in a wide range of subject areas such as: diseases, epidemics, disease diagnosis treatment and methods of disease control in Plants, Animals and Human beings. Special emphasis will be given to research and development, as well as the latter’s interface with the nature, particularly as they relate to major areas of concern in Universe. Articles being considered for publication elsewhere or published previously will not be considered. All material submitted for publication will be reviewed and edited to meet the standards. Copyright for material accepted for publication will transfer to the publisher. The journal publishes papers in English and paper should have an abstract in English of up to 100-400 words.
