The study of how different foods may act with specific genes to increase the risk of common chronic diseases like type 2 Diabetic disorders, Obesity, Cardiovascular disease, Stroke and certain cancers. Nutrigenomics additionally seeks to produce a molecular understanding of how common chemicals in the diet influence health by altering the expression of genes and therefore the structure of Human Genome. The premise underlying Nutrigenomics I that the influence of diet on health depends on a human genetic makeup. Nutrigenomics can reveal several health-related issues that helps to understand what fuels our body and what doesn’t. For example, it helps us understand if a person is lactose or gluten tolerant, how your body processes nutrients and helps in managing your weight.
