I am the co-founder of an early stage Y Combinator backed startup called Million Marker. We are building a service that allows people to measure the body burden of environmental chemicals. Our first product is a mail-in urine test for BPA and phthalates.
Why is this important?
- BPA and phthalates are known endocrine disruptors. These chemicals are everywhere (plastics, personal care products, even in grocery store receipts). Exposure is associated with a number of health effects but the science is not clear on what safe levels are. Reducing exposure as much as possible is recommended for all.
We have a limited number of tests available at early bird pricing. P(r)eeorder today if you are curious to learn about your exposures.
What we are looking for
1. Early bird pilot customers to help us refine the product
2. Ideas for QS-style intervention studies (measuring exposures before and after the intervention). I ran a few experiments on myself and will be sharing my exposure data shortly on this forum.
3. General thoughts and feedback on the concept of a consumer facing exposure testing service as presented on our website
Thanks in advance!
