      Nutrigenomics: The Genome–Food Interface

      Abstract

      Nutrigenomics is the study of how nutrients affect the expression of an
      individual's genetic makeup-the impact of dietary components on the
      genome, the proteome (the sum total of all proteins) , and the metabolome
      (the sum of all metabolites) in humans. Researchers recognize that only a
      proportion of the population will respond positively to specific
      nutritional interventions, while a number of people will be unresponsive,
      and some individuals could even be adversely affected. Nutrigenomicists
      are therefore looking at how the interface of genes and diet may influence
      the rising rates of health problems such as cardiovascular disease,
      diabetes, and obesity in countries around the world.
