Nutritional interventions have the potential to reduce the risk and progression of certain diseases including cancer. One of the most important limitations to modern medicine is the variation between patients in their response to dietary and therapeutic interventions. Nutrigenetics and microbiome, when ignored, lead to variability in response to these interventions. Experts in the field of nutrition, microbiome and cancer will discuss these aspects and the importance of statistics as related to nutrition interventions.
