Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a family of toxicants that are ubiquitous in the environment. These contaminants generate considerable interest, because some of them are highly carcinogenic in laboratory animals and have been implicated in breast, lung, and colon cancers in humans. These chemicals commonly enter the human body through inhalation of cigarette smoke or consumption of contaminated food. Of these two pathways, dietary intake of PAHs constitutes a major source of… Expand
A Critical Review about the Health Risk Assessment of PAHs and Their Metabolites in Foods
TLDR
Based on intake, disposition, and tumorigenesis data, the exposure risk to PAHs from diet is presented and is expected to provide a framework for refinements in risk assessment ofPAHs. Expand
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Digestive Tract Cancers: A Perspective
  • D. L. Diggs, A. Huderson, +5 authors A. Ramesh
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Journal of environmental science and health. Part C, Environmental carcinogenesis & ecotoxicology reviews
  • 2011
TLDR
Dietary intake of PAHs in humans, animal models, and cell cultures used for GI cancer studies along with epidemiological findings are focused on to stimulate research on mechanisms of sporadic GI cancers caused by exposure to environmental carcinogens. Expand
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) and their Bioaccessibility in Meat: a Tool for Assessing Human Cancer Risk.
TLDR
An in vitro human digestion model was chosen for assessing the bioaccessibility of PAHs in food as it offers a simple, rapid, low cost alternative to human and animal studies; providing insights which may not be achievable in in vivo studies. Expand
Bioaccessibility of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: relevance to toxicity and carcinogenesis
TLDR
While bioaccessibility is a promising approach for assessing PAH risk arising from various types of contaminated soils, none of the models proposed appears to be valid. Expand

TLDR
The influence of cooking on the levels of PAHs in foodstuffs, and the consequent intake, depends, not only on the particular cooking process, but even more on the specific characteristics of the respective food items. Expand
Reproductive toxicity of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: occupational relevance
TLDR
This chapter describes how globally human health is adversely influenced by exposure to toxic chemicals that act as endocrine disruptors, including B(a)P, which contributes to the declining fertility in men and women. Expand
Role of Pet Dogs and Cats as Sentinels of Human Exposure to Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
TLDR
The scarce data available indicate that dogs and cats seem to have different sources of exposition to PAHs than humans, and although more studies are needed, pets do not seem to be good sentinels for human exposure toPAHs. Expand
Importance of Dermal Absorption of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons Derived from Barbecue Fumes.
TLDR
In the case of BBQ fumes, dermal absorption was a more important pathway for intake of low molecular-weight PAHs than inhalation. Expand
The ability of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons to alter physiological factors underlying drug disposition
TLDR
The pharmacokinetic properties of PAH, the possible mechanisms by which they can alter drug disposition, and specific examples are discussed. Expand
Metabolism of benzo(a)pyrene by subcellular fractions of gastrointestinal (GI) tract and liver in ApcMin mouse model of colon cancer
TLDR
The objective of this study was to study the metabolism of BaP by subcellular fractions (nuclear, cytosolic, mitochondrial, and microsomal) of the gastrointestinal tract and liver of ApcMin mice that received a subchronic dose of 25 μg/kg BaP. Expand

Intestinal Absorption of Carcinogenic Hydrocarbons
TLDR
It is important to recognize that this group of compounds forms a class of substances such that, although the concentration of any individual compound in a particular food may be relatively low, the total amount of these substances delivered in certain foods may be significant and they should be considered as an epidemiological group. Expand
Determination of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) and Their Metabolites in Blood, Feces, and Urine of Rats Orally Exposed to PAH Contaminated Soils
TLDR
The results indicate that the dosed PAH are largely absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract, subsequently metabolized and excreted as metabolites via urine and feces, and suggest that exposure risk assessment models assuming complete bioavailability of soilmatrix-bound PAH probably overestimate the endogenous dose. Expand
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the diet.
TLDR
Diet is the major source of human exposure to PAHs, and exposure to nitro-PAHs through food consumption appears to be very low. Expand
Food as a Source of Polycyclic Aromatic Carcinogens
TLDR
The presence of PAH in foodstuffs should be reduced to as low as possible by controlling environmental contamination and all procedures that could cause PAH contamination during food processing, preserving, and packaging. Expand

TLDR
It is postulated that reduced solubility, physical adsorption and the formation of chemical adducts between B[a]P and some food ingredients, play a sporadic, although still not well determined, role in reducing the absorption of B[ a]P from the gut. Expand
Cancer risk assessment, indicators, and guidelines for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the ambient air.
TLDR
Fluoranthene is an important volatile PAH because it occurs at high concentrations in ambient air and because it is an experimental carcinogen in certain test systems, and a tentative guideline value of 2 ng/m(3) is suggested for fluoranthene. Expand
Assessment of carcinogenic risk from personal exposure to benzo(a)pyrene in the Total Human Environmental Exposure Study (THEES).
TLDR
The total lifetime risk from personal exposure to BaP for nonsmokers in the community was estimated at 10(-5), and in identifying risk reduction options, it is important to account for the observation that personal activities, lifestyle, and diet strongly influenced individual exposures toBaP.
