The biggest event in the history of the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine has opened to a global audience as it brings together world leading experts to combat the greatest health and environmental risks facing humanity.
The 2020 ACNEM Conference prepares all health practitioners with the knowledge, research and clinical help they need to prepare for the future of healthcare.
Opened by Professor John Hewson the event hosts 50 speakers and content offering insights, evidence and education in COVID-19, global disease and environmental toxicity.
The Big Picture of Environmental Medicine
Professor David O Carpenter, Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment, University at Albany New York presents the frightening reality of environmental chemicals in 2020.
"There are more than 80,000 man-made chemicals registered for use in the world contaminating our air, water and food," Professor O Carpenter said.
"It's impossible for all of us not to be exposed to these chemicals. Recent attempts to monitor the numbers of chemicals in our bodies have found enormous numbers of different chemicals some of which cannot even be identified yet. We are also finding chemicals in umbilical cord blood."
Professor O Carpenter presents detailed and highly engaging evidential links between environmental chemicals and cancer and the role of genes versus the environment in how carcinogens behave.
He deep dives into prenatal chemical exposure and the harmful effects on future generations.
"The important things for physicians and health professionals to understand is almost every disease that can be found in the human population can be influenced by environmental chemicals," he said.
"What your grandmother was exposed to can in fact influence your health and disease."
His compelling presentation is a must-see for all medical professionals wanting to further their career and prepare for what they may encounter in the years to come.
Cleansing a Poisoned Planet
Julian Cribb's Cleansing a Poisoned Planet is also now available on demand at ACNEM Live.
Mr Cribb detailed how humanity is unleashing more than 200 billion tonnes of chemically reactive substances on ourselves and the planet every year. His presentation details a ten-point plan to help clean up the earth.
"Earth, and all life on it, is being saturated with man-made chemicals. It is an event unlike anything that has occurred in all four billion years of our planets story," Mr Cribb said.
"Every moment of our lives from conception to death we are exposed to thousands of substances, most of them unknown in terms of their effects on our health and well-being or upon the natural world."
All those with access need to view Mr Cribb's presentation to learn about the chemical flood dominating the world– five times the scale of our global emissions.
"It is the most underrated, under investigated and poorly understood of all the catastrophic risks facing humanity in the current century," Mr Cribb said.
Mr Cribb's presentation separates the fact from fiction and is available on demand for three months from the date of ticket purchase.
The 2020 ACNEM Online Conference is eight weeks of riveting presentations from more than 50 speakers.

Dr Julie McCredden PhD is an expert on the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and electromagnetic fields (EMF) on children and adolescents.
She says humans are now bathed in man made electromagnetic fields.
"We know children and babies are being exposed from a very, very young age," she says.
"In the US more than a third of babies at six months use computerised toys, smartphones and tablets."
Have you ever considered where your patients live could be making them sick?
Do you ask them how close they live to heavy traffic or if they are near a cell phone tower?
Building biologist Nicole Bijlsma says clinicians need to know more about the proven health hazards lurking in our homes.
