Personalized Nutrition 2019SM 
Restoring Human Health & the Environment
November 12-16, 2019, San Diego, CA

Our environments shape us and we shape our environments. Starting before conception and through old age, our biology, psychology and genetic expression are being formed and informed by the world around us. Our nutritional inputs, toxic exposures, microbiome influencers, and stressors guide and influence our health and our lives.

Proceedings from the 2017 ACN Annual Conference

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.

Compounds produced by gut bacteria alter immune function and energy metabolism in autism

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.
