Environmental Health and Genetics

Most common diseases are a result of both genes and environment. Only a small number of diseases are a result of just a single mutation in a gene. Most diseases, especially common diseases, are a combination of your genetic risk and your environment.  Gene environment interactions are studied to gain a better understanding of various phenomena. In genetic epidemiology, gene-environment interactions are useful for understanding some diseases. Sometimes, sensitivity to environmental risk factors for a disease is inherited rather than the disease itself being inherited. Individuals with different genotypes are affected differently by exposure to the same environmental factors, and thus gene-environment interactions can result in different disease phenotypes.
