The SHEDS models are probabilistic models that can estimate exposures people face from chemicals encountered in everyday activities. The models are able to generate predictions of aggregate and cumulative exposures over time to inform risk assessments that protect human health. SHEDS can estimate the range of total chemical exposures in a population from different exposure pathways over different time periods given a set of demographic characteristics. SHEDS can also help identify critical exposure pathways, factors and uncertainties.
