Everything in life is connected. The work we put in is equal to the value we get out of those efforts. The time we spend preparing for something is proportional to how well we perform when the time comes. And, of course, the food we eat has a direct impact on our overall health and wellbeing.
But there’s more to that last connection than just coincidence. There are also relationships between our genes, our nutrition and our overall health which are all studied as part of the emerging field of nutritional genomics. Those in this field work to understand how the whole body responds to food via systems biology, as well as single gene/single food compound relationships.
