Nicotine is an active substance present in tobacco that causes oxidative stress and tissues damages leading to several diseases. Natural antioxidants that prevent or slow the progression and severity of nicotine toxicity may have a significant health impact. We have analyzed the effects of green tea extract (GTE) on nicotine (NT)-induced reproductive toxicity, oxidative damage and haematotoxicity in adult Wistar male rats. Thirty-two rats were randomly divided into four groups: control… CONTINUE READING
