									Food’s Natural Ability to Manage and Prevent Chronic Disease

14th International Conference of FFC - Second International Symposium of ASFFBC: Functional
Foods and Bioactive Compounds in the Management of Chronic Inflammation: Science and
Practical Application; August 20-22, 2013, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), USA

Dallas, TX, June 30, 2013 --( According to the Center for Disease Control, 70% of deaths are
caused by chronic disease. Clearly, there is a huge need for research in chronic disease management and
prevention. And since 1998, the Functional Food Center (FFC) has been doing just that. While medicine
can be beneficial, the FFC's arsenal of researchers believe that the cure for chronic diseases, such as
cancer, exists naturally in compounds found within certain foods. Food is so much more than proteins,
carbohydrates, and fats... it has a deeper functionality. While progress and development in this area has
been explosive, researchers and scientists are still at the tip of the iceberg.

The FFC's mission is to compile this recent collective knowledge. For this purpose, the FCC has
established the Functional Foods in Health and Disease open-access online journal, which keeps members
of the ASFFBC, readers of FFC newsletter (more than 350,000 readers composed of scientists, medical
doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, and food industry professionals), as well as the public up-to-date on the
latest research in functional foods for the management and prevention of chronic disease.

And since 2004, the FFC has organized conferences where scientists, researchers, and food industry
professionals present their research and discoveries about functional foods. The FFC, in partnership with
the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), is pleased to announce the 14th International
Conference of FFC to be held at UCLA from August 20 - 22, 2013. This conference will include
presentations on probiotic bacteria, soy bean isoflavones, enzyme treated rice fiber, safe iron
supplementation, lipid replacement therapy, and much more.
