Dr Riddells’ research is primarily concerned with the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease and its risk factors. This research can be broken down into three main areas:
• How much salt is consumed within the Australian diet, what are the dietary and health implications and what strategies can be employed to effectively reduce intake?
• Is the presence of excess levels of caffeine and sodium within our food supply increasing food and beverage consumption?
• What is the role of micronutrients in health maintenance and chronic disease prevention?
Current research projects investigating these three areas include investigations into the impact of salt and soft drink consumption on food and energy intake; components of food that passively increase energy intake and micronutrient profiles of blood donors.
