What Now Shall We Eat?: The Best Diets for Longevity

"Dietary advice seems to change almost with the seasons and it is rare that one or more books offering dietary advice is not atop the best seller lists at any given time.

Yet the advice is very conflicting and it is easy for individuals to become confused or overwhelmed.

Dr. Grossman has thoroughly researched the medical literature and presents simple guidelines for people to follow to optimize their health, lose weight and maximize their longevity."

Topic of report
Role of gut bacteria in brain control of appetite in health and disease.
"Surprisingly enough the intestinal microbiota influences not only the digestion and intestinal wall, but also our eating behaviour. Indeed, the intestinal bacteria generate proteins that can travel via vascular system up to the brain and activate the cells that regulate the sense of fullness. Moreover, the antibodies produced by the immune system against such proteins can cause eating disorders."

Topic of report
Nutrition epigenetics and chronic diseases. How to postpone and slowdown disease development by changing your diet?
"Nutrients and diets are known to interact with genes to maintain our health. Recently, the most highlighted mechanism is nutritional epigenetics that may provide a better understanding of the interaction and offer mechanisms by which nutrients can delay aging and the development of aging associated diseases. It is not yet known if aging is epigenetically programmed. However, if we can delineate a longevity epigenotype that extends our lifespan and health span, we may be able to achieve this epigenotype by our diet. Personalized nutrition could also be feasible depending on the epigenomic profile of each individual."

Personalised nutrition in practice — why communication matters
"Personalised nutrition makes sense only if eventually implemented. In the world of overwhelming and conflicting information, an advice of bogus food guru easily finds its way to millions. It is the scientific community that must ensure that credible, science-based, actionable information reaches the general public, if the results of their endeavours are to make a difference. This is especially true in the field in which high-end technology is married to as basic and intimate concepts as nutrition and health. In this report, I will share the learnings from the Food4Me, a major EU-funded project on personalised nutrition, and will leave you convinced that your work is not finished until communicated. Well communicated."

Topic of report
The basis of pharmacogenetics and personalized medicine.
"Personalized medicine is a new branch of modern healthcare based on practical implementation of new molecular technologies. So-called omics (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and microbiomics) help improve the estimation (or prognostication) of proneness to diseases and the prophylaxis and treatment involving such interventions as drug administration and surgical procedures. Personalized medicine is an approach to medical treatment based on the patient’s personal characteristics identified using modern molecular technologies called omics. For that end these characteristics have to be clustered into subgroups depending on the proneness to certain diseases and on the response to specific interventions, be it preventive or therapeutic. Moreover those preventive and therapeutic interventions should be applied in those cases when they can really do some good while being safe and cost-cutting. It is generally recognized that the most promising personalized medicine technology is the pharmacogenetics testing, which is the closest to be applied in real clinical practice and, for some of the drugs, is already put to practice far and wide including Russia."

Nutrition from birth and at a young age: how to lay the foundation of longevity?
"Infancy and youth are the period when child’s nutrition affects not only his growth, development and health. Nutrition patters of the pinafore stage of existence programe the metabolism profile for the child’s future and predetermine long-term adverse health effects. Childhood nutrition disturbances often cause physical and reproductive health disorders, alimentary-dependent diseases, digestive system diseases, allergopathy, overweight and obesity. Moreover, nutrition is a crucial element of diseased child’s treatment, while in such cases as Coeliacs disease, food allergy, dissacharidase deficiency, etc. it is the only treatment option."

"Nutrition is important in childhood due to intensive process of growth and development of the child, improve the functions of organs and systems. Well organized nutrition in early childhood is key to the appropriate eating behavior, prevention of obesity, allergic diseases in the first year of the life and in older age. One of the most important problems of modern Pediatrics is increasing number of patients with allergic diseases, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and obesity. So exactly in these areas, both in treatment and prevention, main role is played by nutrition."

Nutrition from birth and at a young age: how to lay the foundation of longevity?
"Science has proven the integral part played by our immune system in the processes associated with recognition and absorption of food, as well as the removal of what could not be properly digested. We now acknowledge the direct connection between the changes in the globalized nutrition environment and the chronic conditions afflicting the civilized world. Far from few conditions we speak of, are fast becoming an epidemic. With an in-depth understanding of the causes, we have developed means of reversing and ultimately eliminating various types of chronic conditions, including obesity, which we successfully combat by applying and individual approach to formulating an elimination diet. We view the individual approach in creation of a nutrition plan as a cornerstone of a medical profession. Our experienced pediatricians are responsible for thousands of cases of remarkable recovery from conditions and symptoms formerly not associated with food disadaptation. We continue in striving to make the extremely clinically effective approach a scientific, evidence-based medical practice."
