The Role of Interindividual Variation in Human Carcinogenesis

Cong Lai, Peter G. Shields
1999 Journal of Nutrition  
Carcinogens enter the body from a variety of sources, but most require metabolic activation before they can damage DNA.  ...  The process of chemical carcinogenesis is a complex multistage process initiated by DNA damage in growth control genes.  ...  The first group of chemicals is comprised of direct-acting agents, which can react with DNA without metabolic activation to form carcinogen-DNA adducts.  ...
