Description

Background: Evidence for a causal relationship between disinfection byproducts in chlorinated water and cancer is not conclusive. This study investigates the association between disinfection byproducts in chlorinated water, as measured by trihalomethane concentration, and the frequency of micronuclei in urinary bladder epithelial cells, thereby assessing the carcinogenic potential of disinfection byproducts.
