Disclosing genetic information results in greater changes in dietary intake.

A recent study by Daiva E. Nielsen and Ahmed El-Sohemy assessed the effect of genetic information in patient compliance with dietary intervention.  The findings demonstrated that disclosing genetic information for personalized nutrition results in greater changes in intake for some dietary components compared to general population-based dietary advice.
