Biolab Medical Unit and The Great Plains Laboratory are pleased to extend an invitation to our conference “Manufacturing a Healthy Environment from Conception through Childhood: Nutritional, Environmental, and Genetic Factors” in London, UK. from 14 October to 15 October at the Holiday Inn London Regent’s Park.
Bringing a child into today’s world is a difficult challenge. Toxic chemicals can diminish fertility for couples who want to conceive as well as increase the rate of mutations in the parents and in the conceived child. The developing fetus is subject to damage due to drugs, nutritional deficiencies, electronic radiation, and exposure to toxic chemicals. After birth, the child may continue to be exposed to toxic chemicals in the air, the food, and the water. Even breast milk commonly contains toxic chemicals. The focus of this conference is to provide physicians, nutritionists, and other clinicians a roadmap to be able to navigate through the current challenging environment.
Our international group of speakers is composed of physicians, scientific researchers, nutritionists, and therapists.
Our conference is a great opportunity to network with physicians, therapists, and nutritionists working in the community in London and beyond.

Noisy, vibrant and truly multicultural, London is a megalopolis of people, ideas and energy, and a city packed with museums, history, and culture. The capital and largest city of both the United Kingdom and of England, it is also the largest city in Western Europe and the European Union. Situated on the River Thames in South-East England, Greater London has an social population of nearly 8 million people although the figure of over 14 million for the city’s total metropolitan area more accurately reflects London’s size and importance. London is one of the great “world cities,” and remains a global capital of culture, fashion, finance, politics and trade.
