Promoting healthier, longer lives through nutrigenomics
Nearly every aspect of human health is influenced by genetics, from our blood type to the way each person’s body metabolizes nutrients, to predispositions for illnesses such as cardiovascular disease or type 2 diabetes.
Tufts researchers in the field of nutrigenomics are harnessing the wealth of information in our genetic profiles to create dietary recommendations and health interventions tailored to individual needs. In contrast to a “one-size-fits-all” approach, personalized nutrition may lead to substantially better health outcomes and serve as a powerful motivator for healthy choices.
Your gift to nutrigenomics research will help Tufts investigators apply advanced knowledge in molecular biology, genomics, and nutrition to help all people lead healthier lives. Make a gift today.
