Arsenic, a highly hazardous contaminant in our drinking water, accounts for various toxic effects (including cancer) in human. However, intake of arsenic @0.3 μg kg(-1)day(-1) through drinking water, containing arsenic at its guideline value or maximum contaminant limit (10 μg L(-1)), has been estimated to pose very little or no measurable risk to cancer in(More)
Exposure to high contents of arsenic (a genotoxic carcinogen) in humans through drinking water is one of the most serious concerns in many parts of the world including India. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has recommended a permissible limit of daily exposure in humans to arsenic as its reference dose (0.3 μg kg(-1) d(-1)) with(More)
The exposure to arsenic, a potential genotoxic carcinogen in humans, via drinking water is a serious worldwide health hazard. The arsenic content of 10 μg L−1 in drinking water, however, has been established as its guideline standard (maximum contaminant limit) that has been estimated to pose minimum risk to cancer. Since micronucleus induction in the(More)
Arsenic is a groundwater contaminant of global concern. It is a potent human carcinogen, and its marked genotoxic effects have been reported in several human and animal studies. The present work investigates the applicability of the random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) assay to study the DNA-damaging effects of arsenic at low-level exposure in goldfish(More)
Pesticides, spinosad, imidacloprid and neem oil are widely used both in residential and agricultural environments because of its broad spectrum insecticidal activity and effectiveness. The present study was undertaken to estimate genotoxicity of formulations of some pesticides in mice. Three pesticides of diverse group studied were spinosad (45% w/v),(More)
The ubiquitous presence of arsenic (a toxic metalloid) in our environment, particularly in our drinking water, is a serious health hazard of global concern. The present work deals with the assessment of arsenic toxicity through the analysis of induced sperm impairments in sperm head morphology and sperm count in mice at low exposures compared to the(More)
