Have you thought of doing research on the relationship between exposures and disease (e.g. chemical exposure, occupation, infection)?

While this is an interesting research area the reality is that it is very difficult to do well on our platform. We tend to have a highly engaged population with a number of biases such as higher education and socioeconomic status that might mask subtle effects of things like exposure (e.g. it might be unsurprising to find a high instance of engineers with a given disease on our site because measurement and self-tracking may appeal to this group disproportionately). We believe the best exposure studies still come from traditional epidemiology, and while this is on our long-term plan we have no current work in this area.
