From the brain to the heart – What’s new with nutrients?

While the first half of the 20th century focused on the discovery of essential micronutrients and their role in deficiency diseases, more recent nutrition science has focused largely on how foods and dietary patterns impact non-communicable diseases. However, given that nutrition science is still in a relatively early stage, our knowledge on individual nutrients continues to deepen and evolve. This symposium will examine the latest insights on nutrients of significant interest in public health. This is a CPD event.
