Our Purpose:

Health and well-being depend not only on our genetics, but also on how our genetics interact with our environment including, but not limited to nutrition.  Because of the twin challenges of information overload and inconsistent terminology in the literature, our purpose is to facilitate awareness of, and access to, the numerous reports on genetics and health, with emphasis on the interplay between genetics and our environment.  Our hope is to engage the Public, and to equip both the Public and Professionals to dialog together to form partnerships which will result in the appropriate application of this important new field of science -- which includes gene-environment interactions of all types (e.g., pharmacogenetics, epigenetics, nutrigenetics, nutrigenomics, gene expression, and more).
