About this title:

Synopsis: The Increasing Role of Nutrition and Genomics in the Prevention and Management of Disease This book is one of the first scientific publications to combine the subject of food with genetics and genomics and with options for the prevention and management of disease. The complex interplay between genes, food and environment is not only a fascinating new field of research but also a promising new area for maintaining health, ensuring adequate healthcare and promoting effective disease management. The book presents recent knowledge about the effects of nutrients on chronic diseases such as neurological and cardiovascular disorders, cancer, and a number of rare inherited metabolic disorders such as phenylketonuria (PKU), and coeliac disease. The significance of these developments for pregnancy and for the first years of life is prominently described, and this understanding provides options for prevention of serious and disabling disorders. The near future already holds out great hope and expectations. An increasing number of genomics-based products are already under development by the pharmaceutical industry to address unmet consumer needs in the field of prevention. At the same time it is clear that nutrigenomics is a very young science and that much basic and applied research will be needed before society at large can benefit from its fruits in terms of prevention or limitation of disease. The authors have written their contributions at the request of patient organisations that seek for a scientific basis for health policy and action in this busy field. The book is published under the auspices of the World Alliance of Organisations for the Prevention and Treatment of Genetic and Congenital Conditions, an alliance that unites science, healthcareand patients organisations. All three sectors are represented in this book.
