Nutrigenomics

We are what we eat, right?  Nutrigenomics is an upcoming  field of research that will give us more information about how our food can positively (or negatively) affect our health.

Did you know that our genes are connected to our nutrition?   In the future we will learn more about which nutrients, in what amounts, are needed to keep our genes healthy.  Now, that’s exciting and better than just depending on recommended daily intake values.

Do Americans get enough information on nutrition to make wise choices about the foods they eat now?  Why or why not?

Pharmacogenomics Testing and Precision Medicine

In 2018, 23andMe received FDA approval to market a pharmacogenomic test that examines eight different human genes. This test will be obtained without a doctor’s order and will give the consumer information on how he/she metabolizes 50 prescription and OTC medications. FDA is saying, “buyer beware.”

Should pharmacogenomic tests be available to consumers without a physician’s order or healthcare professional’s involvement in test interpretation?
