Put the 23rd September in your diaries! The Nutrition Collective are hosting the world’s top experts in the field of Metabolic Flexibility: Integrative Oncology in Action.
Cancer shows a high degree of metabolic flexibility reacting to cues, and stresses in their microenvironment. In simplistic terms cancer cells have an innate ability to switch between utilising sugar or fat as a fuel source - enabling them to be metabolically flexible.
You will learn the latest research and knowledge about potential strategies you can use in your practice, understanding metabolic dependencies as a therapeutic approach to cancer care.
