Emergence of nutrigenomics and dietary components as a complementary therapy in cancer prevention.
Shambhavi Srivastava et al. Environmental science and pollution research international 2022 11 (60) 89853-89873 (Posted: Mar 02, 2023 10AM)

Personalized Dietary Recommendations Based on Lipid-Related Genetic Variants: A Systematic Review.
Pérez-Beltrán Yolanda E et al. Frontiers in nutrition 2022 4 830283 (Posted: Apr 23, 2022 9AM)

Findings included in this systematic review indicated that a certain percentage of dietary macronutrients, the consumption of specific amounts of polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fatty acids, as well as the ingestion of nutraceuticals or dietary supplements could be considered as potential strategies for the development of a wide range of nutrigenetic interventions since they have a direct impact on the blood levels of lipids.

Opportunities to integrate nutrigenomics into clinical practice and patient counseling
D Roosan et al, EJCN, April 20, 2022 (Posted: Apr 22, 2022 0PM)

We identified four main themes: inadequate training, lack of awareness, underdeveloped nutrigenomics counseling skills, and unreliable evidence-based practice information. Many clinicians did not have the necessary knowledge to perform nutrigenomic counseling and were unaware of the available scientific information source. Moreover, there are no guidelines in the scientific community to counsel patients on nutrigenomics testing.

NIH's ‘precision nutrition’ bet aims for individualized diets
J Kaiser, Science, February 5, 2021 (Posted: Feb 06, 2021 7AM)

There's no one-size-fits-all diet. If you want to avoid spiking your blood sugar with a snack, a banana may seem like a better choice than a sugary cookie. “We all know people who lose weight easily, and others who don't.” Now, the U.S. National Institutes of Health is making a major push to understand these individual differences.

Nutrigenomics: lessons learned and future perspectives.
Brennan Lorraine et al. The American journal of clinical nutrition 2021 Jan (Posted: Jan 31, 2021 0PM)

Although many of the nutrigenomic studies performed to date were labelled as proof-of-concept or pilot studies, there is ample evidence to support the use of these technologies in nutrition science. Incorporating omic technologies from the start of study designs will ensure that studies are sufficiently powered for such data.

Adolescent-Onset and Adult-Onset Vitamin-Responsive Neurogenetic Diseases: A Review.
Mandia Daniele et al. JAMA neurology 2021 Jan (Posted: Jan 12, 2021 11AM)

Vitamin-responsive neurogenetic diseases represent a group of rare conditions that are probably underdiagnosed in adults and may have a dramatic response to treatment when started early in the course of the disease. In this review, main features of the adult-onset forms are defined are provided.

Precision Nutrition-the Answer to "What to Eat to Stay Healthy".
Rodgers Griffin P et al. JAMA 2020 Aug (Posted: Aug 08, 2020 10AM)

Many studies have revealed profound differences among individuals in disease risk and biological responses to diet, making it challenging to fully answer this question. This necessitates moving beyond a one-size-fits-all dietary prescription for optimal health and disease prevention.

Do the microRNAs we eat affect gene expression?
K Campbell, Nature Outlook, June 17, 2020 (Posted: Jun 22, 2020 9AM)

Studies have suggested that genetic material can be transferred from diet. But some researchers have their doubts. The ultimate goal is to learn the language in which our food speaks to us — and to discover whether miRNAs might serve as a Rosetta Stone.

Dietary RNA is ripe for investigation
K Witwer, Nature Outlook, June 17, 2020 (Posted: Jun 22, 2020 9AM)

Opportunities abound to study whether dietary RNA is delivered to the cells of the alimentary tract and the microbes that live there. These investigations must include appropriate controls to determine whether dietary extracellular RNA is mostly a source of nutrition in the form of molecular building blocks.

NIH releases strategic plan to accelerate nutrition research over next 10 years
NIH, May 27, 2020 Brand (Posted: Jun 01, 2020 8AM)

What if each of us had individualized dietary recommendations that helped us decide what, when, why, and how to eat to optimize our health and quality of life? This precision nutrition approach — developing targeted and effective diet interventions in a diverse population — is among the ambitious goals set out by the 2020-2030 Strategic Plan

Contribution of macronutrients to obesity: implications for precision nutrition
Nat Rev Endrocrinology, March 31, 2020 (Posted: Apr 04, 2020 9AM)

the interactions of the genetic make-up and/or microbiota features of a person with specific macronutrient intakes or dietary pattern consumption help to explain individualized responses to macronutrients and food patterns, which might represent key factors for comprehensive precision nutrition recommendations.

Direct-to-Consumer Nutrigenetics Testing: An Overview.
Floris Matteo et al. Nutrients 2020 Feb 12(2) (Posted: Mar 04, 2020 9AM)

In this article, we analyze the online nutrigenetics services offered by 45 companies worldwide, to obtain an overall picture of the costs, the types of nutritional traits considered and the level of scientific precision of the services proposed.

Information Provided to Consumers about Direct-to-Consumer Nutrigenetic Testing.
De Suchetana et al. Public health genomics 2019 Nov 1-12 (Posted: Dec 04, 2019 9AM)

The complex structure of the websites made it difficult to find all key information, with many important aspects buried in legal documents, which were challenging to comprehend even for a professional. The structure of the websites and the amount and quality of the content therein do not support a well-informed decision.

Using genetics to disentangle the complex relationship between food choices and health status
N Pirastu et al, BIORXIV, November 8, 2019 (Posted: Nov 09, 2019 8AM)

After identifying 302 (289 novel) individual genetic determinants of dietary intake in 445,779 individuals in the UK Biobank study, we develop a statistical genetics framework that enables us, for the first time, to directly assess the impact of food choices on health outcomes.

Individualized diets help patients with inherited metabolic disorders
S Rosen Mayo Clinic, Individualized Medicine Blog, October 4,2019 (Posted: Oct 07, 2019 9AM)

Patients with inborn errors of metabolism have genetic variations that interfere with their bodies’ metabolism, affecting the ability to process different nutrients found in food. That’s why finding the right nutritional balance is critical to managing their overall health and avoiding serious, sometimes life-threatening symptoms.

Personalized Nutrition: The Latest on DNA-Based Diets
Scientific American, September 27, 2019 (Posted: Oct 01, 2019 8AM)

Since the sequencing of the human genome, there's been a lot of interest in nutrigenomics. It’s long been clear that we don’t all respond the same way to the same dietary interventions. Some people do really well on a higher fat diet. Others develop high triglycerides or cholesterol on the same diet.

Are Personalized Diets Ready for Prime Time?
D Koenig, WebMD, September 19, 2019 (Posted: Sep 22, 2019 0PM)

“There isn't anything proven yet with DNA. So let's be clear about that,” he says. “The only real breakthrough in recent years has been capturing all of a person's data, including their gut microbiome data.”
