Editorial Policy

At Gene Food, we are committed to providing our readers accurate, evidence based content they can trust.

We have strict editorial guidelines and only link to vetted media sites, university websites and, whenever possible, medically peer reviewed studies that reflect the scientific consensus for that topic. You can find all the references for each blog post, and for every gene listed in our Guide to Genetics and Nutrition, organized at the bottom of the piece.

To ensure we are providing our readers the best possible content, we give a high level of oversight to our Medical and Scientific Advisors. All citations used have been vetted by our research team headed by Dr. Aaron Gardner and Dr. Dan Deakter, MD.

Throughout the site, our editorial links and citations are color coded green.

By contrast, sponsored links are marked red.

Both editorial and sponsored links have been vetted by the research team, however, marking a link red is intended as a clear signal to the reader that the link is an advertisement. In approximately 20% of the content on this site, we list these affiliate links. The use of affiliate links for products we use and have vetted allows us to fund further nutrigenomics research throughout the site.
