The definitive guide to the basic principles and latest advances inNutritional Genomics Though still in its infancy, nutritional genomics, or"nutrigenomics," has revealed much about the complex interactionsbetween diet and genes. But it is in its potential applicationsthat nutrigenomics promises to revolutionize the ways we managehuman health and combat disease in the years ahead. Great progressalready has been made in modeling "personalized" nutrition foroptimal health and longevity as well as in genotype-based dietaryinterventions for the prevention, mitigation, or possible cure of avariety of chronic diseases and some types of cancer. Topics covered include: * Nutrients and gene expression * The role of metabolomics in individualized health * Molecular mechanisms of longevity regulation and calorierestriction * Green tea polyphenols and soy peptides in cancer prevention * Maternal nutrition and fetal gene expression * Genetic susceptibility to heterocyclic amines from cookedfoods * Bioinformatics and biocomputation in nutrigenomics * The pursuit of optimal diets Written by an all-star team of experts from around the globe, thisvolume provides an integrated overview of the cutting-edge field ofnutritional genomics. The authors and editors lead an in-depthdiscussion of the fundamental principles and scientificmethodologies that serve as the foundation for nutritional genomicsand explore important recent advances in an array of relateddisciplines. Each self-contained chapter builds upon itspredecessor, leading the reader seamlessly from basic principles tomore complex scientific findings and experimental designs.Scientific chapters are carefully balanced with those addressingthe social, ethical, regulatory, and commercial implications ofnutrigenomics.
