New title on nutritional genomics now available

Understanding how diet affects individuals in human populations will revolutionize the agriculture, food, and health care industries. Nutritional genomics, or nutrigenomics, is a new field that examines the complex interactions between genetics, disease, and diet. Progress has already been made in modeling 'personalized' nutrition for optimal health and longevity, as well as in genotype-based dietary interventions for the prevention, mitigation, or possible cure of a variety of chronic diseases and cancers. While many self-proclaimed 'experts' have emerged in the media, only a few individuals possess the necessary scientific understanding to effectively interpret nutrigenomic data and make meaningful dietary recommendations.

"Nutritional Genomics: Discovering the Path to Personalized Nutrition" (Wiley; April 2006; 496 Pages; $89.95; Cloth; 0-471-68319-1; http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0471683191.html) provides a genomic roadmap that helps navigation of the many scientific data on food bioactives, human clinical studies, animal models, and population genetics. World-renowned experts in the field of nutrigenomics have contributed their latest breakthroughs and insights to create a comprehensive overview of the fundamental principles and scientific methodologies behind nutrigenomics.

The book guides the reader from basic principles to more complex scientific findings and experimental designs; covers the science in the field as well as recent advances; and explores the social, ethical, regulatory, and commercial implications of nutrigenomics.

"Nutritional Genomics" Covers Such Topics as:

  • The pursuit of optimal diets
  • Green tea polyphenols and soy peptides in cancer prevention
  • Maternal nutrition and fetal gene expression
  • Molecular mechanisms of longevity
  • Genetic susceptibility to heterocy
