Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a large group of organic compounds included in priority pollutant lists because of their mutagenic and carcinogenic properties. Several studies have shown that exposure to benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), a member of the PAHs increases the risk of cancer. This study investigated the effects of firewood smoking and oil frying on the BaP levels in Nile perch (Lates niloticus) sold in Western Kenya. The methodology involved BaP extraction with cyclohexane and… Expand
