The current study sought to examine the extent to which three DNA lesions showed significant reductions after participants quit smoking. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND A long-standing hypothesis is that oxidative stress is a risk factor for cancer. Support for this hypothesis comes from observations of higher levels of oxidative damage in the DNA of WBC of cancer patients compared with healthy controls. METHODS Two generally overlooked types of DNA damage, the formamide modification and the thymine glycol(More)
