The heterocyclic amine 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP), formed when meat containing food is cooked, induces cancer of the colon, prostate and mammary gland of rats, tumours that are strongly associated with a Western diet. After consumption of a meat meal, PhIP is rapidly absorbed, metabolised and bioactivated to DNA damaging species.(More)

We have explored this hypothesis using mutagenicity assays based on bacterial(More)
