Building Biologist and author of Healthy Home Healthy Family, Nicole Bijlsma has published the following paper titled,    ‘Environmental Chemical Assessment in Clinical Practice: Unveiling the Elephant in the Room‘, it discusses ways in which the link between human health and environmental exposure can be managed. It’s an exciting way forward for people who are sensitive to chemicals or suffering ill health because of their housing. This paper will make it easier for clinicians to assist families and people who need it by helping them understand the link and consequences in environmental health and building biology.


There is also a need for concerted action at all levels, including actions by individual patients, clinicians, medical educators, regulators, government and non-government organisations, corporations and the wider civil society, to understand the “exposome” and minimise the extent of toxic exposures on current and future generations
