Exposomics and Health Risk Assessment
In the inaugural podcast episode host Cathy Wurzer, a broadcast journalist from Minnesota Public Radio, talks with two experts in this new frontier of medicine. The exposome looks at everything a person has been exposed to in their lifetime — chemicals, pollution, radiation, biological agents, nutrients in food and measures those exposures to identify biological pathways in the body and how they trigger disease.
Experts expand on the exposome, its history, its relation to disease development in the U.S. and Europe, and the potential to use the exposome framework to improve population health.
