Healthy INSIDER Podcast 136: Nutrigenomics and Personalized Nutrition

The field of nutrigenomics--the effects of nutrition intake on gene expression--is gaining in popularity, particularly as consumers gravitate toward personalized nutrition.

According to Ahmed El-Sohemy, Ph.D., founder of Nutrigenomix and professor at the University of Toronto, the field of nutrigenomics—the effects of nutrition intake on gene expression—is gaining popularity, particularly as consumers gravitate toward personalized nutrition. In this podcast, recorded after his presentation at the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) 2017 workshop and conference in Tucson, Arizona, El-Sohemy talks with Heather Granato, vice president of content at Informa, about:

• The early beginnings of genomic science and where the field is headed

• Examples of nutrition/genetic overlap, such as a person’s ability to metabolize caffeine or lactose

• Implications for personalized nutrition; for example, in addressing obesity or weight management
