Scientists and nutrition experts says that DNA will one day determine what foods work best for your body. Nutrigenomics, or the study of how one’s genes interact with food and drink and diet impacts genes and how genes respond to diet.
As per expert Dietician and curator of Diet Clinic, Sheela Seharawat, now that we understand so much about the genetic basis for food preferences, intolerances, and responses, there is far more personalized data to consider that could contribute to making a logical and feasible diet plan. There is a multitude of factors to consider for your diet and food choices, including lifestyle, mental health, culture, availability, and cost, your DNA should certainly not be ignored. Not only can your genetic makeup predispose you to respond better to certain foods and diet types, the food you decide on actually has the power to influence your genetic makeup and how it functions.
