What Your Genes Want You to Eat. The new science of nutrigenomics wants to create the ultimate personal menu. By Bruce Grierson. [New York Times: Science]
A fascinating article, both for its “heads up” to the subject — As a workable concept, “eat right for your genotype” may be a decade or two — or more — down the road — and for the potential implications. The notion of real time nutritional monitoring takes my mind right to the notion of real time environmental monitoring. That, plus principle-based & class-based [in place of substance-based] environmental regulation — and the holy grail of “getting the prices right” could go a long way to replacing command and control environmental regulation with something both more tolerable, more economical — and more effective.
