This course will take you inside the mechanisms that regulate the process of transformation of food into energy used for growth, health and aging. We’ll discover some of the reasons why sometimes this energy is misdirected and contributes to development of diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Overall, we hope you’ll appreciate how each individual nutrient acts in cooperation and synergy with all the others present in food, and how our organism works with microorganisms that cohabit our body or are present in the environment.
