Abstract:

The potential genotoxicity of cola- containing soft drink was investigated by Vicia faba assay. Root tips were treated with different concentrations of the cola- containing soft drink (100% and 50%) at 24 hours exposure. The concentration exposure affected the mitotic division in root tip cells and produced various chromosomal aberrations. The abnormalities scored were, bridges, fragments, lobulated nuclei, sticky metaphase and sticky anaphase. Exposure to soft drinks inhibited the cell cycle in a concentration dependent manner.
