  • Cardiometabolic diseases, which are the leading cause of death worldwide, are strongly linked to both genetic and dietary factors.
  • Nutrigenomics has the potential to identify genetic predictors of disease-relevant responses to diet, which has wide appeal in the context of personalized nutrition.
  • This statement reviews the current state of the science of nutrigenomics with regard to cardiometabolic health and proposes future directions for advancing the field.
