Abstract or Summary
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a class of usually planar compounds consisting of fused aromatic rings that are formed by the incomplete combustion of organic materials. PAHs are ubiquitous in the environment, coming from a number of sources, such as cigarette smoke, the burning of wood for residential heating, and combustion of fossil fuels in automobiles and in industrial processes. Human exposure to PAHs, through inhalation and ingestion, is attributable to a number of sources. Automobile exhaust, cigarette smoke, industrial emissions and smoke from wood burning are all potential sources of inhalation exposure. Particulates from these airborne sources are deposited on soil and water, and as a result exposure may occur through ingestion of contaminated water and food. Processing or preparing foods by pyrolytic methods such as barbecuing and smoking also results in elevated PAH content. There is also risk of occupational exposure to PAHs for workers in industries such as coal tar production and municipal incineration where carbonaceous materials are burned.
