Our genomes and our genetic polymorphisMS are the essence of human beings. Health and disease genes are responsible for our inherited disease traits. Many of our genes are able to be modified; most are not. Non-modifiable genes, such as our age, sex, family history may predispose us to disease; in the future might we be able to change these or mitigate by diet. In the future certain alleles in varieties of crops in regular foods, or in genetically modified foods may be engineered to yield gene modifying effects to yield molecular cures for diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and hundreds of other maladies. Foods might not just be measured by bushels per acre; but maybe by benefits to all of humanity by easing our global burden of disease. The science of nutrigenomics provides a molecular understanding of how common dietary chemicals in our foods affect your health by altering your individual gene expression profile. Whether or not you may be beneficially impacted by chocolate, red wine, vitamin d receptor, exercise, salt, broccoli, anti-oxidants, omega-3 oils, omega-6 oils, soluble or insoluble dietary fiber or a host of thousands of other chemicals will be decided by your unique individual profile and your lifestyle choices. By your food choices, you may be able to adjust your genome or modify your chosen lifestyle.
