Advances in Nutritional Science for Immune Protection


A Nutritarian diet refers to a diet comprehensively rich in micronutrients including protective antioxidants and phytochemicals (which also guards against excess caloric intake).

This webinar with Joel Fuhrman, MD, reviews the basic principles of longevity science and the scientific evidence showing we can win the war on cancer with adherence to a diet-style rich in anti-cancer phytochemicals. And the same factors that enhance the immune system and protect against cancer are critical for infection protection.
