Elle sera donnée, en anglais, par le professeur Robert Lustig, de l'Université de Californie - San Francisco et Fellow-in-Residence à CY Advanced Studies, sur le thème :

“The secret to wellness is identifying the illness"


Résumé - Over the past 50 years, society has seen the explosion of obesity, diabetes, fatty liver disease, cancer, and dementia. Likewise we have seen an marked increase in addiction, depression, anxiety, inattention, and hate. Do these exist in a vacuum? Or are they somehow related, and if so, how? The Guest Lecture will address contemporary issues of chronic disease, pertaining to the overlaps of metabolic, mental, and societal health worldwide.
