Shisha Smokers’ Desire To Quit Shisha Smoking Habit: Findings From A Nigerian Pilot Survey

bowl and hose or tube ( British Heart Foundation 2019 ). Shisha smokers, often times, do not smoke shisha alone but smoke it in the company of their loved ones ( Maziak et al 2005 , Martinasek et al 2011 , Afifi et al 2013 , Caroll et al 2014). In fact, some families engage in shisha smoking at social and family gatherings ( Afifi et al 2013 , WHO Study Group on Tobacco Product Regulation (TobReg) 2015 ). Shisha has tobacco as one of its major constituents ( Bahelah 2014 , WHO Study Group on Tobacco Product Regulation (TobReg) 2015 ); this implies that shisha

Cytogenetic Study on Workmen Occupationally Exposed to Pesticides

Cytogenetic Study on Workmen Occupationally Exposed to Pesticides

A cytogenetic study was performed on 40 workmen who were exposed to the pesticides malathion and chlorpyrifos and on 30 healthy males who had not been so exposed. The exposed workers had a consistent increase in chromosome abnormalities including chromatid gap, chromatid break, isochromatid break, dicentric and ring chromosomes, as determined by the standard chromosome aberration assay, when compared to the control group. The incidence was significantly higher in exposed smokers than that for exposed non smokers and than that for the unexposed controls as well. These findings provide further evidence for the intrinsic mutagenic activity of the pesticides studied.
