Our overall cumulative environmental exposures i.e. the exposome, are responsible for as much as 70% of chronic disease risk.
Yet if you ask your doctor what you can do about this, chances are they won’t know what to tell you beyond general guidance on eating right and exercising. While this may be generally the right advice, it is neither very personalized nor is it very helpful, especially if you are doing those things already.
There are tests that you can order today that give you very specific information about your genetics and ancestry, which you can do nothing to change. Yet there are shockingly few tools available that let you understand which environmental chemicals your body has been exposed to and what you can do about it.
We have asked ourselves questions about how our environment and everyday choices impact our health.
We created Million Marker to answer questions like these and many more. Our mission is to crowdsource bio-monitoring to help people understand what’s in their body that shouldn’t be there and how to minimize their exposures.
