New York Times: A Personalized Diet, Better Suited to You
At the Weizmann Institute of Science, research scientists recently completed the largest study of its kind supporting the need for personalized diet recommendations.
This week, The New York Times Well blog featured the study’s findings which revealed that blood sugar levels in response to different foods are highly individual. With the goal of finding out what causes blood glucose responses to food, the team from Weizmann’s Department of Immunology laboratory studied multiple factors of 800 people including family history, lifestyle and gut bacteria. A grant from the Trust supported the creation of this laboratory to find better ways to understand the mechanics of how the immune system is involved in inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s Disease.
