MADP is a charitable organization dedicated to advancing public health and disease prevention. We are committed to patients, providers, and the community at large – combatting the world’s largest killing epidemic of chronic disease.
We invest in the microbiome, precision medicine, and precision nutrition – bringing forth the latest cutting-edge science and ground-breaking discoveries to the forefront to prevent and improve debilitating chronic disease states such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer.
MADP operates as a Collaborative Alliance partnering with renowned clinicians and researchers from leading clinical research hospitals and institutions across the country. MADP Alliance partners are committed to coming together to improve our nation’s health, and the health of humanity across the globe.
The rapid advances in science have expanded our ability to understand the power of the human microbiome. This rich ecosystem of more than 100 TRILLION bacteria, fungi, viruses, and more live in and on the human body. They play a critical role in human health and sustaining life—without them there would be no life.
The human body has 100 times more microbial genes than human genes. The microbial genes make up what is called the ‘second genome‘.
The community of microorganisms that comprise the gastrointestinal tract, commonly referred to as the ‘gut microbiome’, regulate vital biological functions from creating vitamins to controlling our immune system, metabolism, nervous system, and even our brain.
Chances are either you, or someone you care about, has been diagnosed with either heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, autoimmune disease, food allergies, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, or dementia. These are a few of the multitude of chronic, inflammatory disease states that are directly influenced by our microbiome.
The microbiome, and targeted precision nutrition, have an integral role in the life of cancer. When battling cancer, every minute matters. Patients do not have the time to wait for clinical care to catch up with the latest advancements of science.
The MADP “Eat To Starve Cancer” ™ Initiative is a comprehensive education and advocacy program tailored specially for cancer patients before, during, and after treatment – cancer prevention measures included – caregivers are welcomed.
