This pivotal text: Documents the epigenetic effect of antioxidants and their health benefits Adds to the understanding of mechanisms leading to disease susceptibility and healthy aging Illustrates that the epigenetic origins of disease occur in early (fetal) development Synthesizes the data regarding nutrient and epigenomic interactions Nutrition and Epigenetics highlights the interactions among nutrients, epigenetics, and health, providing an essential resource for scientists and clinical researchers interested in nutrition, aging, and metabolic diseases.She joined the Oregon State University faculty in 2003 after receiving her PhD in human nutrition from the Ohio State University and ... oncology in the Free Radical and Radiation Biology Program at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa.
