Sommaire de l'article

The thrust of this presentation takes a more programmatic approach and gives an overview of the programs at the NIH and the NCI that have a broad nutritional and basic science undercurrent and outline. Also discussed briefly are some areas of general concern that are under investigation in the nutrition group and are included in the group’s outreach efforts among professional and academic organizations. The overarching focus of these efforts is to stress the importance of nutrition as a potential modulator of health/disease risks associated with genetic predisposition and environmentally induced disease from diet, lifestyle and exposure to pollutants.
