Nutrigenetics

Nutrigenetics refers to the application in nutritional research on  genomic .Principle allowing us to formulate associations between specific nutrients and genetic factors, such as how food or food ingredients influence the expression of genes. It aims to identify the genes that influence the risk of diet-related diseases and also help in solving the mechanisms underlying these genetic predispositions. Nutrigenetics, on the other hand, shows the alignment of individuals ' genetic makeup with their reactions as well as   specific dietary nutrients. It clarifies various individuals ' responses to the same nutrient. The present study addresses the role of genetic background and diet with their   respect . The   development of chronic conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and cancer. These two nutritional branches resemble two sides of a coin, facing opposite sides, but at the same time being intimately attached to each other. Scientific community collaborative efforts are required to strictly follow guidelines on experimental designs, evaluation, and nutritional research data processing. This technique will be helpful in building a reliable database that is useful to physicians and dieticians.
