Pet dogs as sentinels for environmental contamination


, : Pet dogs as sentinels for environmental contamination. Science of the Total Environment 274(1/3): 161-169

The presence of environmental contaminants in air, water and food may pose significant health risks to the exposed human population. However, problems associated with assessing chronic exposure to low doses of environmental chemicals, multiple exposure routes, diseases with long latency periods, and non-specific health outcomes make it difficult to conduct the appropriate human epidemiological studies. It may be useful to complement human epidemiology with animal studies.

An investigation into the effect of pre-feeding with different diets and of instillation of foodstuffs into the stomach on the incidence of ulcers in pylorus-ligated rats. Rats pre-fed on a South Indian diet show a much higher incidence of ulceration of the stomach after pyloric ligation than those on a North Indian diet. Removing vegetables and pulses from the North Indian diet deprives it of its protective effect....
