    Ok, maybe we don't know what that is, haha. Its where nutrition and the study of genetics collide. They can look at certain genes and determine the risk of disease, etc., then they adjust the diet accordingly.

    I know Berardi was working on getting a cheap home testing kit done about a year ago. Still haven't heard much about it yet; This is something that's around the corner, not quite here yet.

    At this point, it's a burgeoning science - tests are expensive and individuals qualified to administer them are somewhat few and far between.

    More practical at this point, IMO, to learn what you respond to best via trial and error. Not as definite, but sufficient for the time being.

    Did some research, there actually is a full nutrigenomics test for around 600 bucks. The company can give you a customized pack of supplements. They also have a simple questionare that you can fill out and send in.

    $600? A bit too pricey for me, but it's good to know it's available.
