The lungs have strong and diffuse antioxidant system in intracellular and extracellular level:
It has been detected that Maras Powder, which has been used as an alternative for tobacco, has adverse effects for human health:
Worsening in lung functions like in case of tobacco,
Oral cancer risk,
( mean value of age 30,08 ±6,69), no history of tobacco use.
OXIDATIVE STRESS INDEX(OI)= TOL/TAC
There was a significant difference between Maras powder group, smokers group and control group (p<0.05).
There was no significant difference between Maras powder group and smokers group(p>0.05).
