Environmental Exposure History

Environmental Exposure History refers to a record or documentation of an individual’s or population’s past exposure to environmental factors, such as chemicals, pollutants, physical hazards, or other potentially harmful agents present in their surroundings. It involves gathering information about the specific environmental exposures individuals may have encountered over a certain time period or in specific locations. Environmental Exposure History is crucial for assessing potential health risks, investigating the causes of adverse health outcomes, and developing strategies to mitigate or prevent future exposures. It may involve various methods, including interviews, surveys, biomonitoring, and analysis of environmental data to understand the timing, duration, and intensity of exposures that individuals or populations have experienced.
