Why Targeting Metabesity 2021

The health and quality of life of billions of humans and trillions of dollars in savings opportunity are at stake.

Targeting Metabesity 2021  is an event organised by the Kitalys Institute.  It will address some of the most critical issues in healthcare today:

  • Focusing on chronic (not just acute) diseases
  • Shifting the spotlight beyond treatment to prevention
  • Going beyond disease-by-disease treatments to prevention of multiple diseases by addressing common root causes
  • Shifting from addressing diseases to extending healthy lifespan—healthspan

Extending healthspan

Targeting Metabesity 2021 is an ongoing call to action and a silo-busting conversation for tractable steps today to address major healthcare challenges!


“Expanding evidence supports that the major chronic diseases—cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and the aging process itself—have common metabolic roots and thus may be susceptible to shared solutions. Metabesity names this constellation of conditions.”
