A revolutionary pollution sensor to measure exposure to Chlordecone

Chlordecone is a very persistent carcinogenic insecticide widely used until 1993 in the French West Indies to treat banana plantations against weevils. Because of its persistence over several hundred years, the West Indian populations are particularly exposed. Scientific studies show that it is responsible for an alarming rate of prostate cancer in Martinique and Guadeloupe.

An innovative tool to measure personal exposure to toxic substances

In a world where toxic products are present in our daily lives, taking action to reduce exposure to ambient pollution is a priority. To act effectively and preserve your health from the effects of pollution, you need to know your enemy! In the case of ambient pollution, only a measurement of personal exposure can identify its origin.

Exposure to PFAS: What are the health risks?

The high bioaccumulation of perfluoroalkyls (PFAS) has been demonstrated in Arctic animals such as polar bears, seals, bald eagles, birds and fish. There is great concern about the pollution of the environment (water, air, soil) by PFAS and their impact on health. Due to their heavy use, only PFOA and PFOS have health effects reported in the scientific literature, unlike other PFAS, which have not been the subject of many toxicological studies.
