Özet

X-ray radiation is detrimental to human cells and may lead to development of life-threatening diseases. Cigarette smoke contains about 500 chemicals that include organic and oxidant compounds whereas vitamin C and E (VCE) have scavenger effects on the compounds. We investigated effects of VCE administration on X-ray-induced oxidative toxicity in blood of smoker and nonsmoker X-ray technicians.
