Nutrigenomics: Developing Personalized Diets For Disease Prevention

Personalized dietary advice based on a person’s genetic makeup improves eating habits compared to current ‘one-size-fits-all’ dietary recommendations, researchers report. Nutrigenomics is a field of research that aims to understand why some people respond differently than others to the same foods. Personalized nutrition, a branch of personalized medicine, is an application of nutrigenomics that helps tailor dietary recommendations to a person’s DNA.

Diet for your DNA: Novel nutrition plan sparks debate around data protection

Personalized nutrition based on an individual’s genotype – nutrigenomics – could have a major impact on reducing lifestyle-linked diseases such as obesity, heart disease and Type II diabetes, experts say. However, a study of more than 9,000 volunteers reveals that strict regulations need to be put in place before nutrigenomics becomes publicly acceptable due to people’s fears around personal data protection.

Nutrigenomics researchers replicate gene interaction with saturated fat

Rsearchers have identified a gene-diet interaction that appears to influence body weight and have replicated their findings in three independent studies. Men and women carrying the CC genotype demonstrated higher body mass index scores and a higher incidence of obesity, but only if they consumed a diet high in saturated fat. These associations were seen in the apolipoprotein A-II gene promoter.
