The Human Exposome

The exposome refers to the totality of environmental exposures in a lifetime from conception onwards.

It shifts from the ‘one exposure, one disease’ framework to a holistic approach that explores multiple environmental factors affecting health.

The exposome is comprised of three overlapping domains: the personal, external and internal exposome. The personal contains a person’s exposure to chemical pollutants, behavioural and lifestyle factors. The external includes urban, built and transport settings, natural and green spaces, social aspects and climate. The internal exposome implies the biological responses to the personal and external exposome, including metabolism, aging, gut microbiota and stress.
