Exposure to pollution: Bringing scientific analysis to whistleblowers
Today's lifestyle is not without risk to human health. Hundreds of toxic chemicals share our lives, mostly without our knowledge.
Many chronic diseases have their origins in our daily environment and the WHO states that they are the leading cause of death for humans.
- Cardiovascular diseases.
- Neurological disorders.
- Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.
- Endocrine diseases.
- Liver and kidney disorders.
Daily exposure to a cocktail of chemical substances composed of heavy metals and organic pollutants such as plasticisers, pesticides, flame retardants, etc. is known to have a proven impact on short, medium and long-term health.
Some pollutants have health effects from low doses of exposure and mixtures of pollutants can multiply their toxicity (cocktail effect).
"We are all concerned by the effects of pollution."
This pollution can come from many sources:
- Consumer products.
- Plastics and microplastics.
- Consequences of industrial accidents.
- Industrial pollution.
- Residues from industrial operations.
- Factories, mines and industrial sites.
- Polluted water, air and soil.
- Intensive agriculture.
- Incinerators and waste treatment sites.
- Indoor pollution in housing.
Whistleblowers, collectives, members of civil society and associations are at the forefront of the commitment to inform and defend citizens and future generations against the multiple sources of pollution.
- Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs)
- Consumer associations.
- Consumer product testing organisations and foundations.
- Associations and groups of local residents.
- Associations fighting against cancer and chronic diseases.
- Associations and foundations for the defence of the environment.
- Parents' groups.
- Inter-professional associations.
- Farmers' associations.
- Trade unions.
- Any association of victims of environmental pollution...
EXPOZOM is the solution for accurate and reliable measurements to provide scientific evidence to demonstrate the reality of exposure and health risks.
EXPOZOM proposes to measure exposure to pollutants in our daily environment:
- Biological analyses to measure the contamination of the body by heavy metals, pesticides, plasticizers and flame retardants.
- Environmental analyses to measure ambient air pollution by volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
Why measure the exposome?
- To assess the health risks of exposure to pollution.
- To identify the pollutants potentially responsible for chronic diseases.
- To prevent the risk of chronic diseases.
- To highlight field observations.
- Prevent occupational diseases.
- Reduce asthma and pulmonary pathologies.
- Support parents before conception and during pregnancy to limit the effects on the embryo and fetus.
- Prevent congenital and endocrine diseases.
- Preventing reproductive disorders.
- To study the links between a pathology and environmental pollution.
Why use EXPOZOM solutions?
- Simplicity of use: reliable and very simple sampling methods, requiring no technical skills.
- Highly accurate measurement results.
- Reliability of a certified French laboratory using state-of-the-art technology.
- Complete and anonymous analysis report.
- Prepaid return of samples included in the kit from many countries.
