Genomic healthcare has become of critical importance when genomic information can be used routinely to improve the health Figure 1 [1], diagnosis [2,3] and treatment of all individuals. The discovery of the heat shock gene Sirtuin 1 [3,4] indicates that diet [5-7], stress and lifestyle are critical factors that determine the management of genetic disorders in man and longevity in various species [8]. Sirtuin 1 is involved in the induction of diabetes, regulation of the immune system, cholesterol metabolism, epigenetic modifications [9,10] and the development of multiple organ disease syndrome (mitochondrial apoptosis). The role of Sirtuin 1 in human genomic healthcare [1] is now critical to various genes and the predisposition to several diseases.
