About This Book

Genetic Factors in Nutrition presents the proceedings of the International Workshop on Genetic Factors in Nutrition, held in Teotihuacan, Mexico, on August 4-8, 1982. The papers explore the link between genetics and nutrition in the context of biological evolution. They provide examples of successful interaction between the two disciplines and consider some aspects of nutrient requirements, as well as utilization and consideration of methodological approaches to evaluate nutritional status, with an emphasis on malnutrition.
Divided into six parts encompassing 29 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of genetics and nutrition from an evolutionary perspective, citing findings among Amerindians. It proceeds with a discussion of the potential application of genetic epidemiology in nutritional research, nutrient requirements and metabolism, the association between obesity and energy balance, and assessment of nutritional status. It also presents case studies of the correlation between genetics and nutrition before introducing the reader to genetic inheritance and growth in human groups suffering from chronic under-nutrition. Some data derived from nutrition longitudinal studies are analyzed to interpret the nutrition-genetics interaction.
This book will be a valuable source of information for scientists and students in genetics and nutrition.
