This volume presents new insights on nutritional physiology and biochemistry based on studies of patients with genetic defects in protein, lipid, and carbohydrate metabolism.

From these observations, the contributors develop concepts that are applicable to people with normal metabolism and to individuals at risk for common diseases. The book includes extensive discussions of nutritional aspects of genetic variation in populations. Other chapters present new perspectives on gene therapy for inborn errors of metabolism and recombinant modifications in food production.There are indications that there is active transfer from the mother to the fetus a€” for example, cord blood concentrations are higher than maternal blood concentrations; ...
