Food Writer Reviews Nutritional Genomics

Senior editor at the Atlantic and food writer Corby Kummer has a wide-ranging review of the emerging science (and preliminary practice) of nutritional genomics in the recent MIT Tech Review.  He covers the definition of nutrional genomics; its promises and problems; the major movers of the field; preliminary gene-diet successes like the hepatic lipase gene variants and cholesterol ("one needle in a very high haystack"); and the shape of the marketplace for "genomic diets."
