Adverse Effects of Foods in Genetic Disorders

  • Meinhard Robinow


Most products of food metabolism have adverse effects on health if their concentrations in blood and extra- and intracellular fluids exceed narrow physiologic limits. Homeostasis, the maintenance of normal concentrations, is achieved by a vast number of genetically determined enzymatic processes that regulate digestion, absorption, transport, intermediate metabolism, and excretion.
