Nutrigenomics often interchanged with nutritional genomics is a multidisciplinary science deals with the study of how food affects our genes and how an individual’s genetic difference play role in responding to the nutrients and other compounds in the food we take. It is use of genomics to examine the interaction of diet and genes involved in health or disease. Recently nutrigenomics has gained a lot of attention in treating or preventing chronic diseases. It helps with personalized medicine and health. Certain factors are taken into consideration such as action of dietary chemicals directly or indirectly on the human genome.
