Forum Nutr. , Canada Abstract Nutrients interact with the human genome to modulate molecular pathways that may become disrupted, resulting in an increased risk of developing various chronic diseases. Genetic polymorphisms affect the metabolism of dietary factors, which in turn affects the expression of genes involved in a number of important metabolic processes.

Do we need to revisit some of the nutrient reference values where in some instances it appears that there are much higher levels of for example folate needed to maintain genome stability [44]? Nutrients may have a protective effect on one pathway and a nonprotective effect on another and these complex interplays need to be understood. Furthermore, nutrients or bioactives may be protective at one level and nonprotective at a higher level and this effect may depend on the genetic background of the individual.
