‘A fascinating insight into one of the most exciting & rapidly evolving areas of modern science.’ Michael Mosley, author of The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet FORGET EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT FOOD... At the world-renowned Weizmann Research Institute, Dr Eran Segal and Dr Eran Elinav have been looking at what and how we eat differently. In one of the largest ever studies of nutrition and health they have proved conclusively that every food affects every body differently. In other words, what is healthy for one person could be unhealthy for another. The Personalized Diet offers the ground breaking knowledge, tools and life hacks to re-examine how you think about food, health and well-being, and discover the right foods for you. There are no foods that are just good or bad, there is no one-size-fits-all diet; instead, there is The Personalized Diet. Welcome to your blueprint for a healthier, happier, longer life.

From one person to the next, optimal health is governed by a huge array of minor genetic differences. When modulated by a variety of food bioiactives, these differences result in changes in gene expression and subsequent phenotypic expression. Combining biomedical and social science with contributions from leaders in both fields, Personalized Nutrition: Principles and Applications illustrates molecular, physiological, epidemiological, and public health aspects with examples from major diseases and discusses the behavioral, ethical, and consumer perspectives that will influence a successful introduction of personalized nutrition. Divided into three sections, the book answers pertinent questions crucial to the mainstream acceptance of personalized nutrition: to what extent is this personal diet-and-health relationship practically valid? how can nutrition science demonstrate this? And what is the proposition of stakeholders in society, including the consumer? The book begins with an overview of the state-of-the-science in nutrigenomic technologies including transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. It covers the use of genomics technology for a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in major diet-related chronic disorders such as chronic inflammation, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Section two compares the practices and opinions of scientists, food companies, consumers, competitive athletes, and health care providers on the subject of personalized nutrition. It reviews marketing potential, consumer attitudes, and the ethical issues surrounding personalized advice. The final section focuses on humanitarian concerns related to developing countries and calls for international efforts to develop best practices, collaboration, and dataset sharing. The authors also consider ongoing innovations in food technology, nutrigenomics, and food delivery systems.

Research shows that humans respond differently to diets and, moreover, that they display varying predispositions to many diet-dependent metabolic and degenerative diseases. The focus of nutritional science is thus shifting from dietary guidelines for populations to individualized foods and diets. It is the aim of nutrigenomics to assign this human diversity in nutritional response to diet - as well as the subsequent consequences to human health - to specific genetic elements. At the same time, evidence suggests that diet itself is a critical determinant of human diversity. Supplying answers to some crucial issues, as well as identifying directions for further research and practical applications by the food industry, this publication is an important source of information for all those involved in the subject of diet and individual responses.

Awareness of the influence of our genetic variation to dietary response (nutrigenetics) and how nutrients may affect gene expression (nutrigenomics) is prompting a revolution in the field of nutrition. Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics provide powerful approaches to unravel the complex relationships among nutritional molecules, genetic variants and the biological system.This publication contains selected papers from the ‘3rd Congress of the International Society of Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics’ held in Bethesda, Md., in October 2009. The contributions address frontiers in nutrigenetics, nutrigenomics, epigenetics, transcriptomics as well as non-coding RNAs and posttranslational gene regulations in various diseases and conditions. In addition to scientific studies, the challenges and opportunities facing governments, academia and the industry are included.Everyone interested in the future of personalized medicine and nutrition or agriculture, as well as researchers in academia, government and industry will find this publication of the utmost interest for their work.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: First (77), Roehampton University London (Business School), course: BSc International Business - Entrepreneurship, language: English, abstract: This report has been generated for Venture Investors to locate a promising new market, in which it is recommended to invest in. Research pointed out that Personalized Nutrition is a fast growing market. The personalized nutrition market is emerging out of the functional food market (beneficial food) because of new innovations in nutrigenomics. “Nutrigenomics is the study of interactions between genetic and dietary factors and their influence on health and disease.” (http://genome.wellcome.ac.uk/ 2006) It gives an insight of how food interacts with human genes and that an incorrect diet can be responsible for diseases. Nutrigenomics drives the market for functional food to a new level where beneficial food can be personalized. The report analyses the market and its environment and discusses about Business and Investment opportunities within the market using a screening method. An examination of the successful development and launch of the real world outcomes will be given and recommendation for New Venture Plc. for equity investment made.

While functional foods have become a reasonably well-established concept, personalized nutrition is still treated with skepticism by many. The recognition that people would have different nutrient requirements, or perceive foods in different ways, raises several concerns—some real, some not so real. Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics in Functional Foods and Personalized Nutrition addresses what is needed to bring nutrigenomics, nutrigenetics, and their associated technologies to market in a truly impactful way. Edited by Lynnette R. Ferguson, a well-known and internationally respected researcher, the book covers a wide range of issues, from the purely scientific to ethical, consumer-driven, and public health aspects. It takes a close look at gene–diet interactions and explores the ways in which studies on nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics can help modulate disease risk in cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, and inflammatory bowel disease. Topics include regulatory challenges, genetic testing for consumers, data mining, transcriptomic analysis, and the role of science and health professionals in the commercialization of nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics. The book also examines industry–academia partnerships as a nexus between the science and its commercialization by the food industry. These partnerships will be an important determinant of what value the technologies bring, not only to the market but to the wider health and well-being of society. Exploring how nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics can help modulate disease risk, this timely book brings together stimulating, well-thought-out perspectives from established and emerging researchers. It provides valuable information on a subject that is becoming increasingly important for nutritionists, dieticians, and clinical professionals, as well as for the food industry and research community.
