  • Current Dietary Phosphorus Intake: Are there Potential Implications for Public Health?

    Tuesday, February 26, 2013 | 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Sciences

    Exploring the mechanisms responsible for risk associated with hyperphosphatemia in chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease, this symposium examines the potential health implications of these mechanisms at the population level if general intake is increased.

    This conference will highlight changes in understanding of hormonal regulation of phosphorus homeostasis and how this may explain potential adverse health effects of phosphorus intakes beyond nutrient requirements, exploring in particular the relationship with kidney function, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, hypertension and cancer. A panel discussion will identify further areas of research and discuss how existing evidence should be considered as well as needs to new evidence for the upcoming review of dietary guidelines for Americans in 2015.

    Reception to follow.
