Nestle will develop individual diets based on DNA tests

In recent years, DNA tests can tell you pretty much about the man and these data can be used not only for scientific purposes, but in order to extract additional value. At least that's the opinion in Nestle, which experts will develop and sell customized meal plans based on DNA-testing in the near future.

A very unusual thing according to Bloomberg. According to available information, individually designed nutrition, according to the company, increase life expectancy and maintain health. Moreover, Nestle has already started the first tests. The experiment is very ambitious and it was a 100000 people in Japan. All of them will receive special devices for collection of genetic material, which can be used directly at home without any special skills. Next, the collected samples will be sent to the laboratory of Nestle, where on the basis of received data the specialists of the company will be able to advise each individual subject, what diet to follow and what supplements to include in your diet and which to avoid. Moreover, these supplements will be shipped directly to the person in an easy to use and separately purchased do not have to.

At the moment we know that the cost of the program will be about $ 600 per year. And, on assurances of experts, the use of individual nutrition plans based on the DNA tests will help to identify susceptibility to such serious conditions as high cholesterol or diabetes, thereby decreasing the likelihood of their development. In addition, it is argued that the new program will help to better control weight, but how effective will be the venture of Nestle, it will be possible to talk only after some time.
