It adopts a multidisciplinary approach, involving molecular biology, molecular epidemiology and nutritional science, with a special focus of the book is on disease prevention and treatment. Of interest to all healthcare-related professionals as well as nutritionists, and the medical community focusing on disease prevention.Table of ContentsGeneral introduction The research program in epigenetics: the birth of a new paradigm Interactions between nutrition and health Epigenetics: Comments from an Ecologist Interaction of hereditary and epigenetic mechanisms in gene expressionHereditary aspects Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T and A1298C polymorphisms and cancer risk: a review of the published meta-analyses The Role of Biobanks for the Understanding of Gene-Environment Interactions Case studies on epigenetic inheritanceEnvironmental and toxicological aspects Genotoxic, non-genotoxic and epigenetic mechanisms in chemical hepatocarcinogenesis: Implications for safety evaluation Carcinogens in foods: occurrence, modes of action and modulation of human risks by genetic factors and food componentsNutritional aspects From molecular nutrition to nutritional systems biology Effects of dietary natural compounds on DNA methylation related to cancer chemoprevention and anticancer epigenetic therapy Health determinants throughout the life cycleCase studies Viral infections and epigenetic control mechanisms Epigenetic aspects in gynaecology and reproductive medicine (Johannes Huber) Epigenetics and Tumorigenesis Epigenetic approaches in oncology Epigenetic Dysregulation in Aging and Cancer The impact of genetic and environmental factors in neurodegeneration: emerging role of epigenetics Epigenetic biomarkers in neurodegenerative disorders Epigenetic mechanisms in asthmaWays for translation of the concept Public Health Genomics - Integrating Genomics and Epigenetics into National and European Health Strategies and Policies Taking a first step: epigenetic health and responsibility
