Primary Research Focus Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) have identif?ed numerous variants that have a positive association with several diseases.1 However, in prevention efforts, aside from gene therapy, it is not feasible to modify the genetic determinants of risk, only to modify the environmental factors that interact with those genetic determinants to cause disease. Thus, it is critical to determine what these environmental factors are in order to target prevention efforts.
