The Epigenome: Nutrition and Metabolic Health

A better understanding of the epigenetic mechanisms involved in metabolism may inform our ability to affect health outcomes with early nutritional interventions, creating a new interface for disease prevention and public health intervention with the next generation. In both developed and developing economies, obesity stands out as a primary target for such intervention, not only as an epidemic in and of itself, but also in virtue of its close association with other non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Here we’ll consider a quick review of the literature on epigenetics, nutrition, and the developmental origins of metabolic health.
