Environmental Aromatic Nitro Compounds and their Bacterial Detoxification
- 81 Downloads
Modem industry has produced many useful chemical agents, but they and their by-products have also contributed to environmental pollution. The effects of environmental chemicals on human health are of considerable concern, since damage to DNA by environmental mutagens, both natural and man-made, is likely to be a major cause of cancer and other diseases (Rosenkranz, 1973; Doll, 1977; Wynder and Gori, 1977; Ames, 1979).
