What is the Exposome? | Measuring Cumulative Exposure

“…the measure of all the exposures of an individual in a lifetime and how those exposures relate to health. An individual’s exposure begins before birth and includes insults from environmental and occupational sources.” In other words, the exposome is the ultimate measurement of every substance an individual has ever been exposed to, whether dioxins and phthalates, chemicals in pesticides and flame retardants, or viruses and bacteria.
