Several landmark discoveries have deepened our understanding of living organisms, for example the structure of the cell, the role of organelles, and the mechanisms of protein synthesis. Recent food and health metabolomic research has gone one step beyond classical nutrient-based concepts of nutrition, approaching the essence of biology. So far, we have delved into the cause of diseases at the genome and epigenome level. A further step is the discovery of microRNAs (miRNA), and their importance in controlling health and diseases [1-4]. We are thus closer to understanding the mysteries of life.
