Disinfection by-products in drinking water and genotoxic changes in urinary bladder epithelial cells

Ranmuthugala, Geethanjali Piyawadani


There is much debate on the carcinogenic potential of disinfection by-products (DBP) in chlorinated water supplies. Until recently, epidemiological studies have been limited in their ability to examine accurately the risk of cancer with exposure to environmental carcinogens. This has largely been due to the long latency periods associated with cancer development, and the difficulties in accurately estimating chronic exposure.
