On August 16th and 17th, we had the honor of convening a remarkable group of scientists and journalists at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio to discuss recent progress in the science of low carbohydrate nutrition. This symposium was hosted by the OSU Food Innovation Center and the video recordings were sponsored by Virta Health.
Topics addressed by the 15 speakers ranged from basic molecular functions of ketones as signaling molecules and fuel to practical treatment strategies for cancer, metabolic, heart, and brain disorders. Additional presentations spanned topics from public policy and healthcare guidelines that stand in the way of adopting ketogenic treatments to the practical role of nutritional ketosis in sports across the spectrum from ultra-endurance to professional soccer.
