The goal of the editors of this quantity is to exploit easy and ap­ plied experiences within the box of mutagenesis to strategy an issue of especial obstacle. the matter is that of the use of poisonous chemi­ cals, fairly agricultural chemical substances, in ever-increasing quan­ tities in these components of the area that feed the main humans. Agri­ cultural chemical compounds which are in use in Pakistan are emphasised right here. those are an identical chemical compounds which are in use in the course of the increase­ ing global, even supposing the amounts of the different sorts which are used could differ from kingdom to nation, and from zone to area inside international locations. a few those chemical substances can not be bought in Europe or within the usa, and it's always tough to iden­ tify a systematic cause as to why they're offered in any respect. it truly is ironic that poisonous chemical substances are used as a humanitarian equipment to rid the realm of Pestilence and Famine -- of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. If we don't want toxic chemical substances to develop into the 5th Horseman of the Apocalypse, then we needs to commence now to spot and keep an eye on the large-scale utilization of poisonous sub­ stances everywhere.

They are usually stable events. Chromosome aberrations are visible changes in chromosome structure and involve the deletion, duplication, or rearrangement of large numbers of genes. They are usually lethal events, but may give rise to viable cell lines with one or more stable chromosome changes. Alterations in chromosome number are often the result of cellular recovery from mitotic poisons, are usually lethal events, and may result in human disorders such as Down's syndrome. All of the genetic changes mentioned above can be induced by chemicals, and all have implications for human health.

Some of these compounds are known to express acute or chronic toxicity, including mutagenic and carcinogenic effects. Included in this group are several of the pesticides described in this volume by Sandhu et al. (1983). For many others and for their possible metabolites, little is known of the adverse health effects which might result from longterm consumption of contaminated water. a Other water-borne, halogenated compounds arise during the chlorine disinfection of wastewater and drinking water.

Public health measures and chlorination of drinking water supplies have provided water essentially safe with respect to infectious disease. Procedures are widely applied for quantitation, biological assessment and control to within safe limits of contaminants such as toxic metals, radionuclides, and nitrate. However, during the last 40 years there have been major increases in the manufacture, transport, use and disposal of industrial chemicals including halogenated industrial solvents and pesticides.
