Nutrigenomics Live Webinar 

The study of how food affects a person’s genes and how a person’s genes affect the way the body responds to food. Nutrigenomics is used to learn more about how genes and diet together may affect a person’s health and risk of developing diseases, such as cancer. It may also help find new ways to prevent and treat disease.


Nutrigenomics increases our knowledge about the mechanisms by which nutrition affects the metabolic pathways underlying homeostatic control. Subsequently, this can be used to determine naturally occurring chemical agents in food that could prevent the onset of diseases such as obesity, type-2 diabetes and cancer. The nutrients present in the diet are received as signals by the sensory system of the various cells in the body which are interpreted by the cells to gene expression, protein expression and metabolite production. Hence, different diet patterns elicit a variety of gene and protein expression and metabolite production. Such diet-induced patterns and their effects are described by nutrigenomics as “signature dietary patterns”. Micronutrients and macronutrients are potent dietary signals that influence the metabolic programming of cells that play a crucial role in the control of homeostasis.


Nutrigenomics, which studies the interactions between different types of food and the genome, can aid in selecting foodstuffs that are vital to health. One of the emerging fields of research to use nutrigenomics is complementary alternative medicine (CAM). CAM is defined as a method of treatment that is used together with (complementary) or instead of (alternative) traditional medicine and includes meditation, spiritual healing, energy therapy (magnet therapy and light therapy), massage therapy, acupuncture, herbal preparations (Ayurveda), dietary supplements, yoga, acupressure, movement therapies, naturopathy and homeopathy.
