A growing body of research is documenting that the relentless increase in environmental contamination has become a major driver of the chronic disease epidemics. The genomics revolution is providing important insights into patients' unique physiological strengths and susceptibilities. Of particular importance is the research showing that poor conversion of dietary forms of nutrients to the activated forms actually used in metabolism is surprisingly common. This fundamentally changes how to optimally practice therapeutic nutrition. This presentation reviews the clinical implications of the latest research in environmental toxicity and nutritional genomics.
