Biomonitoring is measuring environmental chemicals in the human body (tissue and fluids) such as urine and blood

The NH Biomonitoring Program logoWhy conduct Biomonitoring?

  • To understand which chemicals are getting into people’s bodies and at what levels (how much) from environmental sources such as air, water, soil, food, and even everyday products
  • To track possible trends of chemical exposures in people
  • To learn and better understand the relationship between chemical exposure, body burden, and human health
  • To help evaluate and make changes to public health policy and interventions (like treatment or removing products from our homes or work) so we can better protect you, your family, and your community’s health
