WELCOME TO THE HUMAN TOXOME PROJECT

Just as scientists raced to define the human genome, the Human Toxome Project (HTP) at Environmental Working Group is working to define the human toxome-the full scope of industrial pollution in humanity. HTP scientists use cutting edge biomonitoring techniques to test for industrial chemicals like bisphenol A and perchlorate that enter the body through pollution or even as ingredients in everyday consumer products.
