Episode Info:

Don’t underestimate the power of food in our past, present and future evolutionary biology. Today, Mark is talking with Dr Christine Houghton who has amassed over three decades of wisdom in clinical nutrition and has a passion for the interplay of nutrigenomics with the food and nutrients we consume. Christine takes us back to the basics with a review of the terminology that makes up the field of genetics in healthcare. She navigates us through the epigenetic and gene expression effects of the foods we eat, the microbiome and the influence our genes have on many pathways of the body including methylation, inflammation and detoxification. One message is resoundingly clear: when it comes to positively influencing our genes, there is no single supplementary intervention that can substitute for the complexities of the phytonutrients we obtain from having a diet rich in diverse foods.
