«The more scientific definition by Nature goes like this: “nutrigenomics is the study of the effects of food and food constituents on gene expression, and how genetic variations affect the nutritional environment. It focuses on understanding the interaction between nutrients and other dietary bioactives with the genome at the molecular level, to understand how specific nutrients or dietary regimes may affect human health.”»

«Reason 1: It is extremely challenging to learn nutritionally guiding principles from genetic tests» 

«Reason 2: Pricing will be very tricky»

«Reason 3: Nutrigenomics will not offer easy fixes for fast results»

«Reason 4: All you see is bogus, fake science everywhere»

«Of course, we are not giving up hope to be among the first ones to test a reliably working, accessible, DTC nutrigenomics test. While this time arrives, I will figuratively put nutrigenomics on my shelf of flops, right next to my – very solid – 3D printed cast.»
