In one study carried out in Sweden, 2-hydroxyethyl adducts (produced by ethylene oxide, a metabolite of ethene), were determined in Nterminal valines of haemoglobin from groups of urban and rural inhabitants [25). No difference was found. In another study, Silesian urban areas were compared to unpolluted Polish countryside by assaying for aromatic adducts in white blood cell DNA by 32p_postlabelling and immunoassay [39]. Individuals from the urban area displayed about 3 times as many adducts as the population from the rural area.
