Treating future diseases today

08 Jun

End of May is a traditional setting for World Nutrition Day which this year was celebrated in Ukraine for the fifth time and for the first time centred around an event outside Kyiv, in Odessa. Hundreds of doctors from all over the country got to know the most up-to-date research findings they will now implement in their practice. Perhaps the most interesting scientific news at the conference held at Odessa Opera House was the results of nutrigenomics — new academic field that allows doctors, by analyzing the types of intestine bacteria, to predict the future health conditions in a still healthy person.
