About this book

Presenting up-to-date research on the relationship between nutrition and the evolving field of epigenetics, this work takes a close look at current findings and the potential impact of this research on our understanding of aging, embryonic growth, and the development of cancer. With the aid of numerous color illustrations and photographs, it effectively describes how nutrients modulate physiologic and pathologic processes. Providing a starting point for further research, as well as applicable clinical information, it covers a range of cutting-edge topics that include current findings on DNA methylation, histone modification, and chromatin remodeling. It also details methods to measure epigenetic phenomena.

Media reviews
Overall, the volume does an important service by unraveling, in a systematic way, the importance of nutrition and specific nutrients in the regulation of epigenetic processes. ...What is our responsibility as parents in establishing the health of our children even during pregnancy? How can children's diets today influence them, and also their children, over many years from now? The answers to these questions, and also many others, may well lie between the covers of this book. --American Journal of Human Biology, 2010
