Theme: "UPSTREAM ~ DOWNSTREAM" Metabolically Profiling the Individual
The Institute for Human Individuality has as its prime goal the fostering of research in the expanding area of human nutrigenomics. The science of nutrigenomics seeks to provide a molecular understanding for how common dietary chemicals affect health by altering the expression or structure of an individual's genetic makeup:
The basic tenets of IfHI are:
Improper diets are risk factors for disease.
Dietary chemicals after gene expression.
Diet can influence an individual's genetic makeup.
Diet-regulated genes influence chronic disease.
Genetic-based diets prevent and mitigate chronic disease.
