Personalized Nutrition 2019
Regenerate Health in our Toxic Environment
November 13-15, 2019, San Diego, CA
We live in a toxic environment. Our exposures profoundly impact our biology, our genetic expression, and ultimately our health. We in turn impact our environment in profound ways, and in particular through our nutritional choices.
Cancer is a major public health problem and is the second leading cause of death in the United States and worldwide; nearly one in six deaths are attributable to cancer. Cancer has long been perceived as an almost exclusively heritable disease, but science continues to reveal a new understanding of cancer as a complex, chronic disease that occurs along a spectrum of immune and metabolic function with many factors impacting risk, onset and severity.

Two recently published Canada-US research studies reinforce the notion that the human gut is a complex ecosystem - the microbiome - that exists in a delicate balance and exerts significant influence over human development, immunity, energy, health and behavior. This team is examining exactly how this occurs.
While the team's research focuses on autism - the rates of which have increased 200-fold in last 50 years - it has far-reaching implications for all humanity: Disrupt the gut bacterial balance and it can wreak havoc on your health and behavior.
