Explore the shifting landscape of cancer care at the American College of Nutrition's 58th annual conference in Alexandria, Virginia.The medical science is evident: cancer is not purely genetic. It is not a binary nor a random disease. Instead, cancers are complex chronic conditions that occur across a spectrum of dysfunction with many factors impacting risk, onset and severity. In fact, 90-95% of cancers may be attributable to lifestyle and environmental inputs.
The personalized nutrition paradigm is a powerful disruptor of both the narrative and pathology of cancer.Discover how systems biology, metabolism, epigenetics, nutrigenomics, the microbiome and environmental inputs interact to unravel the trajectory and heterogeneity of cancer. Learn from thought leaders, innovators and clinicians to deepen your understanding of how personalized nutrition impacts cancer prevention and treatment.
