By Professor Dr. Alexey V. Yablokov, Dr. Sergey A. Ostroumov (auth.)

This booklet is predicated on our books, released within the USSR and translated in a couple of different international locations Conservation of dwelling nature: difficulties and views (1983) and the degrees of conservation of dwelling nature (1985).

1984). Of the 6 million t dry matter of sewage sludge produced annually in the EEC, 30% is used as fertilizer in agriculture, and this leads to the unintentional pollution of the soil by xenobiotics and products of biotransformation of their molecules. A dangerous process is the interaction of nitrites and amines in sewage waters or in sewage sludge, with the formation of nitrosamines which are potent mutagens and carcinogens. Among the ecologically hazardous processes which may accompany the biodegradation of molecules of pollutants are the changes in biochemically important parameters of water: levels of oxygen, natural antioxidants and peroxides, pH etc.

In guinea pig liver MNFA is hydrolyzed more quickly than in rat or mouse liver, and this may explain the higher toxicity of MNFA for guinea pig than for mice and rats (Paulson 1984). Another example of toxification is the conjugation of certain arylhydroxylamines with N-glucuronic acid and these conjugates in turn are converted to highly reactive arylnitrenium ions under acidic pH which could explain why humans and dogs with acidic urine are more prone to bladder cancer when exposed to arylamines than animals with basic urine (Paulson 1984).
