Differences in environmental factors across populations may mask some genetic associations and therefore gene–environment interactions should be explored. We hypothesized that the association between dietary patterns and components of the metabolic syndrome could be modified by INSIG2 variants.Subjects/methods:We conducted a longitudinal study… CONTINUE READING
