We have recently shown that inhabitants of
two polluted areas in Kosovo display more DNA damage
(strand breaks in blood cell DNA) than do residents of
a cleaner area. Here, we present additional analyses of
these data and discuss additional data sets from Kosovo.
Based on our data as well as the available data from
other authors, age and sex-related differences in DNA
damage or in susceptibility to DNA-damaging agents in
the environment should be carefully considered when
designing biomonitoring studies and when carrying out
statistical analysis of the data.
