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…

Determination of Benzo[a]pyrene in Traditional, Industrial and Semi- industrial Breads Using a Modified QuEChERS Extraction, Dispersive SPE and GC-MS and Estimation of its Dietary Intake
A fast and simple modified QuEChERS extraction method was developed for determination of Benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) in 137 traditional, semi-industrial and industrial bread samples using spiked calibration curves by GC/MS, and BaP content in all industrial samples was lower than LOQ.
Determination of Benzo(a)pyrene Levels in Smoked Clarias gariepinus and Heterotis niloticus in Hadejia Jigawa State and Geriyo Adamawa State
This study determined the levels of benzo(a)pyrene in smoked Clarias gariepinus and Heterotis niloticus. Questionnaire was administered to fish processors at the Hadejia and Geriyo fish processing
Validation of an Analytical Method for Determination of Benzo[a]pyrene Bread using QuEChERS Method by GC-MS
The developed method used for determination of BaP in 29 traditional and industrial bread samples collected from Tehran in 2014 showed that two Sangak samples were contaminated with BaP, which is the first report concerning contamination of bread samples withBaP in Iran.

Determination of benzo[alpha]pyrene in Turkish döner kebab samples cooked with charcoal or gas fire
In order to investigate the levels of the potent carcinogen benzo[a]pyrene (B(a)P), 40 samples of doner kebab were analysed. The samples tested included 20 cooked using a charcoal fire and 20 cooked
Determination of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Rougan, a Traditional Chinese Barbecued Food, by Capillary Gas Chromatography
Several polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), including those which are carcinogenic, have been detected in rougan, a traditional Chinese barbecued pork dish. The food samples were cleaned up by

Analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in fish: evaluation of a quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged, and safe extraction method.
Although benzo(a)pyrene, the marker used for evaluating the carcinogenic risk of PAHs in food, was not detected in the analysed samples, the overall mean concentration ranged from 2.52 +/- 1.20 ng/g in horse mackerel to 14.6 +/- 2.6 ng/G in farmed seabass.
