A mix of Health and Big Data, the exposome will change our lives: "More personalized and predictive medicine" - What's coming?

The noise of cars, smoke from exhaust pipes, artificial light from lights and the stress of traffic jams. All this is our day, and we assumed that we should not worry. But really, a new term invented by science tells us that we should at least take it into account. is he explanatoryMaría Teófila Vicente Herrero, a doctor specializing in Occupational Medicine,set of all environmental exposures The exposure of the individual from the moment of conception to the moment of death.”. It includes physical, chemical, biological, radiation, social factors or economic situation.

And science shows that knowing this environmental data is important because Non-genetic factors contribute to approximately 90% of the risk of chronic disease and It could be the second reason to reduce life years in Europe the most. And if we know its causes, we can lessen its impact.


There are two types of exposomes: public and private. Special, “lifestyle, tobacco use, diet type, physical activity and water consumption”; while about the general “environmental factors, climate change, green and urban environments, socioeconomic conditions of the population, traffic and heavy metal pollution”.

Of course, there will be many stimuli around us. we don’t even realize. So many that it must be very difficult to describe them all. However difficult it is, there are some researchers who suggest it. Miguel Atienza is an engineer and works with the Ministry of Health on a project of the Carlos III Institute. His team began developing an exposome-related data model.. Atienza explains that this data model allows information from mobile devices to be “transferred” to the healthcare system.
