Ever since the human genome was mapped, scientists have been using that information to learn more about health and disease. One new field to emerge from the Human Genome Project is nutritional genomics. In this hour, we'll talk about nutrigenomics — how the degree to which diet influences health depends on your unique genetic makeup.
