What Role Gene Environment Plays In Gene Expression And Human Health Security?

Ron Martin, Founder of “Nutrigenetics Unlimited, Inc” based in United States participated in Risk Roundup to discuss “What Role Gene Environment Plays In Gene Expression And Human Health Security?”


For every nation, the economic and security consequences of poor health and disease onset are substantial and consequential. As a result, understanding root causes of diseases has become a fundamental necessity.

Science believes that the expression of genes in humans can be influenced by the environment, including the external world in which humans live, as well as the internal world, which includes factors such as diet, nutrition, hormones and metabolism. Therefore, understanding the interaction and correlation of the internal environmental factors as well as external for human health, disease onset, health security, healthcare industry, nations economy and security has become a fundamental necessity.

It is important we evaluate this further.

  • What role environment plays in human disease causation?
  • Why is understanding gene environment so important?
  • What are different environment variables that should be considered when  evaluating internal as well as external environment and health security risks?
  • How much understanding is there of the complex interactions?
  • What is the role of external environment variables and human disease causation?
  • What plays bigger role? Genes or environment?
  • How do our genes and the environment interact?
  • What is the medical significance of understanding what role nutrition plays on gene expression?
  • What impact will the growing database of genetic information have?
  • While there is the ability to identify alleles underlying rare and common diseases, is there a potential for how to manipulate the internal and external environment based on the information that is available?
  • How can individuals control both internal as well as external environment for their health security?
  • What are the challenges in understanding the role gene environment plays in gene expression?
  • What technological advances has changed or transformed our ability for understanding human disease genomics?
  • Where has the progress been made when it comes to human disease genomics?
  • How will building genomic variant knowledge base benefit the healthcare providers as well as consumers?
  • How will the genomic library with published scientific articles from medical literature benefit the security community?


Understanding of the internal as well as external environmental factors plays an important role for gene expression, human disease causation, healthcare, nation’s economy as well as security. Time is now to talk about “Gene Expression Security Risks”.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve Global Peace through Risk Management. It is her strong belief that collaboration within, between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the Security Centric Integrated Cyberspace, Geospace and Space Risk Management framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the Digital Global Age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!

At Risk Group, Jayshree is driving the thought leadership on “Strategic Security Risk Intelligence”! She believes that Cyberspace, Geospace or Space (CGS) cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched Cyber-Security, Geo-Security and Space- Security Risk Research Centers that will merge the boundaries of Geo-Security, Cyber-Security and Space-Security.

In 2015, Jayshree launched “Risk Roundup” an Integrated Cyber-Security, Geo-Security and Space-Security Risk Dialogue. Risk Roundup Webcast/Podcast are available on YouTube, iTunes, Google Play, Risk Group website, and professional social media.

Jayshree’s inaugural book, The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

Risk Roundup: Webcast/Podcast, a global initiative launched by Risk Group, is an integrated cyberspace, geospace, and space (CGS) security risk dialogue for individuals and entities across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA). Risk Roundup is directly trying to promote and enhance CGS risk intelligence by collective participation of decision makers from across NGIOA.

Risk Roundup is released in both audio (Podcast) and video (Webcast) format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group

Risk Group is an integrated cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS) security risk research organization. Risk Group is on a mission to epitomize collective risk intelligence of nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) as the synergistic intersection among independent as well as interconnected and interdependent CGS security risks to help achieve an effective process for better collective security risk intelligence, management and governance than silo and fragmented security risk approach that we have across nations today. Risk Group is determined to engage the collective NGIOA risk intelligence capability to manage CGS security risks—risks impacting individuals and entities across NGIOA. Having a collective NGIOA risk intelligence capability will be transformative for not only achieving CGS security but also global peace.

Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
