An individual’s genetic traits play a role in how nutrient intake affects disease risk.

______ True    ______ False

Expert Solution
Summary Introduction

To examine: Whether the statement “An individual's genetic traits play a role in how nutrient intake affects disease risk” is true or false.

Introduction: An individual’s genetic traits can result in marked variation in the development of disease risk between individuals with the same dietary intake. Nutrient-dependent interactions occur at genetic, protein production, and metabolic levels in an individual.

Explanation of Solution

The genotype of an individual is a prototype that defines the nutrient state of the body, metabolic response, and nutrient-related health problems.

Nutrients regulate gene function in an individual by regulating the turning on and off of certain genes involved in various metabolic reactions in the body. Therefore, individuals with different genotypes can have a variable metabolic response to the same level of nutrient intake...
