Heart Healthy, or Healthy Heart? Learning From Nutrigenomics

In an interview posted to MIT’s Technology Review online magazine, Jose Ordovas, director of the Nutrition and Genomics Laboratory at Tufts University, talks about recent nutrigenomic work. After taking a look at data from the ongoing Framingham Heart Study, Ordovas found that certain genetic variants, including variations in a gene known as apoliprotein E (ApoE), can be risk factors for heart disease.

If you knew how your genes might betray you, would you love them differently? Read the entire interview to find out what this nutrigenomics leader has to say.
