The last 100 years has seen the development of a vast array of new chemicals that have changed the world around us – the paints for our cars, the plastics to pack our food in, the red dyes on the MacDonald’s fries packet, the batteries for our cell phones, the yellow dyes we give our hens to make sure they lay yellow-yoked eggs, and so on, and so on… The problem is that every day we are all exposed to hundreds, if not thousands, of different chemicals from the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. The question is what are all these chemicals doing to us and should we be worried?<br>

Nutrigenomics is the study of the response of humans to food. Genomic, proteomic and metabolomic approaches are used in this work. The goal of nutrigenomics is to develop foods that can be matched to individual human genotypes to benefit the health of the individual.<br>The workshop will allow students to explore the FOLATE issue and find out how nutrigenomics can help society understand issues such as this.

LENScience Connect National Education Events

LENScience National Education Events are student programmes arranged to coincide with national science events, international conferences and visiting scientists. Programmes bring students and scientists together, are curriculum linked and in most cases supported with teacher professional development. There are a number of schools and universities that have offered to be regional venues for these National Education Events. Alternatively if your school has a satellite dish and decoder or is on the National Education Network, you can participate that way. For more information see the LENScience Connect Technology Information page.
