Thirumurugan P, Senthamil Selvan P, Yamini Priya V, Dhanasekar L

Environmental pollution and its impact on human being have well recognized during few decades. The role of air pollutants causing health hazards substances are distributed widely in ecosystems due to diverse human activities. Mosquito coils are widely used as mosquito repellent. The major active ingredients of most mosquito coil are pyrethrins. The combustion of mosquito coils generates large amounts of sub-micrometer particles and gaseous pollutants. These particles and cause the potential toxicological effects of the smoke on mammals. This study therefore aims to investigate the toxicological effects of mosquito coil smoke in rats with hope that the results would provide a guide line for proper use of these coils.
