NutrigeneticsApplying the Science of Personal Nutrition
Fully referenced, readable guide to understanding the rationale and importance of nutrigenetic applications and explains why single nutrition recommendations will not fit everybody or even most modern humans. This book blends key concepts from the fields of genetics, biochemistry, epidemiology, public health, and clinical medicine to give a rich perspective on the genetically diverse nutritional needs and sensitivities of individuals in health and disease. There is a great need for a solidly evidence-based yet accessible book that explains the science of nutrigenetics and provides the tools to evaluate new nutrigenetic tests plus the ethics involved.
The challenge is to find out what nutrient amounts and which foods work best for an individual when there are so many potential differences. Most chronic nutrition-related diseases are in part caused by a mismatch of food and individual needs.
Continue with evidence-based courses such as this one that challenge and stretch us with higher level information and thinking requirements. – Mary Anne D. 5/31/22
Thank you for this well written course. It has pertinent information regarding differences in genetics and response to nutrition interventions that makes sense in my practice. I appreciate this as a further resource, and when things clinically are not stacking up, that I can reflect on genetics, change the course of diet intervention. It also allows for sensitivity to patients based on differences in genetics. - Ann D., RDN 3/30/22
Great book. I would recommend to anyone that would like to optimize their health. - B. Burke 12/20/16
