The idea of nutritional genomics studies the relationship between the components of food and gene expression. The findings are that the more complex the nutrients, the higher the gene expression is. The more complex the nutrients, the higher the gene expression is.
This all sounds very exciting, but it’s not. The key word there is complicated, because the study is only half the equation. First, it’s difficult to study the complex relationship between nutrients and gene expression because of technical and ethical limitations. That means we won’t be able to see the effects of eating complex carbohydrates, for instance, as we now know they actually increase the risk of certain diseases.
The same limitation applies to the study of gene expression. There are a lot of things we can measure about gene expression (like the intensity of the fluorescence) but we don’t have the ability to measure the complex relationship between nutrients and gene expression.
The problem is that, even though we can’t see the relationship between carbohydrates and gene expression, we can at least say there is a relationship. And since we can see the relationship between complex carbohydrates and certain diseases, we now know there is a relationship between complex carbohydrates and certain diseases.
So how do we take this information and make sure we make the right choice? Well, with the rise of new biotechnologies such as high throughput gene expression analysis, we may be able to give a hint of what the right choice is. By studying the relationship between food structure and gene expression, we can see how our choices directly impact our gene expression.
Another new technology is the high throughput gene expression analyses which allow scientists to study thousands of genes simultaneously. This allows them to make a list of specific genes that appear to have some kind of gene expression pattern in response to a given food. For example, in a study which looked at the effect of different types of sugar on gene expression in heart tissue of rats, the researchers found that high sugar consumption resulted in increased expression of certain genes.
The researchers found that all of the genes that were up-regulated were those that are involved in the regulation of fat metabolism. This means that if you eat a high fat diet for example, you’re going to be more likely to store excess fat as body fat. And because many people are high in fat, it’s an easy way to sneak in extra calories in a hurry.
The research is nice because it suggests that people can eat high fat diets and still lose weight. This means that instead of putting on weight, high fat diets can actually help us lose weight (although you can try to do it by using low fat diets as well).
The research also suggests that genes that regulate our metabolism are controlled by small molecules called hormones. These hormones control us in many ways and it is known that they can mess with our fat metabolism. If you eat a high fat diet and are likely to store fat as fat, youre going to have a lot of fat in your bloodstream, and the good news is that a high fat diet is going to help you lose weight.
In fact, it can even help you lose weight more quickly. By eating a diet high in both healthy fats and saturated fat, you will have less insulin and other hormones in your blood stream that tell your metabolic rate to slow down. This, in turn, will help improve your metabolism and reduce the amount of fat you store.
