About the Nutrition & Metabolism Society
The Nutrition & Metabolism Society of Brooklyn, New York is a 501©3 nonprofit health organization providing research, information and education in the application of fundamental science to nutrition. The Society is particularly dedicated to the incorporation of biochemical metabolism to solving problems, such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
To fulfill this mission, we host nutrition research conferences, publish scientific findings, provide educational information, and publish an open-access, online journal. In association with the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, we host scientific conferences on the nutritional and biochemical aspects of carbohydrate restriction.
While not advocating any specific dietary strategy, our society believes that the therapeutic potential of low-carbohydrate diets for the treatment of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease is under investigated and under utilized.
