Science, Society, and the Supermarket: The Opportunities and Challenges of Nutrigenomics discusses the many ethical, legal, and social challenges presented by nutrigenomics. Concerning itself with the basic uses of nutrigenomic research as well as its clinical and commercial aspects, this text sheds light on such issues as:

  • Opportunities and challenges for nutrigenomics
  • The science of nutrigenomics
  • The ethics of nutrigenomic tests and information both in a clinical setting and by private third parties
