NUTRIGENETIC RESPONSE The study of gene–nutrient interactions is an expanding area of science and one that is becoming increasingly present in the scientific and public press. Discrepancies in the literature may arise from failing to recognize interindividual genetic differences in the response to foods or their components. One of the best examples reflecting how a false conclusion may arise comes from studies with colon cancer animal models. In studies by Yang et al. (2001), a decreased survival of mice was observed when mice were fed a Western-style diet (high in fat and phosphate and low in calcium and vitamin D) compared with an ideal semipurified diet.
