The upcoming Issue of JNHFS contributes to provide Health policy and to better understand the necessity of food hygiene from production to consumption. It spreads to the public regarding the new regulations in this field according to the Regulation of WHO and EU health legislations that are involved in food safety, nutrition and dietetics with respect to Human and Experimental studies. The Journal addresses various specialists such as Hygiene Epidemiologist, Microbiologist, Specialist in the fields of Food industry, Veterinary science and other experts to offer technical support and advice.

Foodstuffs can become hazardous due to contamination and alimentary intoxication and that's the reason we give greater significance to respect HACCP legislations during preparation, processing, storage, distribution, transportation and final consumption [1].

Our intention in this Issue is to provide a platform to promote the modality of safe food hygiene in environment in order to prevent and alleviate alimentary intoxication and to create awareness among consumers [2].
In this Issue we will cover the following topics:
• Human Nutrition and Health Sciences, Epidemiology, Micronutrients
• Food Safety/Hygiene, Quality Assurance/Quality Control [3]
• Hazardous Management[4]
• Novel (new) research methods and technologies to detect food contamination[5]
• Intra hospital infection due to microorganisms like staphylococcus aureus etc [6]
• Clinical Nutrition[7]
• Food Security Policy -New Regulations
• Food Safety Monitoring [8]
