Food is Medicine: The Krupp Endowed Fund at UC San Diego

Microbiome (Audio)

Science & Medicine

Food is medicine. That insight inspired the late rancher and developer Dick Krupp to endow one of the largest funds of its kind to support integrative nutrition research at UC San Diego. As Gordon Saxe, MD, the director of UCSD’s Center for Integrative Nutrition and others explain, the Krupp-funded projects focus on how diet and natural therapeutics can help reduce or cure common health problems. Among the projects featured – feeding cancer patients congee, a grain-based porridge to ease the side effects of chemotherapy, a study led by Caitlin Costello, MD, of the Moores Cancer Center. Also, Sanjay Agarwal, MD, looks at the impact of a healthy diet on women who suffer from endometriosis. And finally, Robert Weinreb, MD, the director of the Shiley Eye Institute, introduces a new field of medicine called Integrative Ophthalmology. All agree: what you eat matters!
