Nonaddicted to tobacco female bidi rollers working from home

Bidi is a cheap Indian alternative to cigarette . Bidi rolling is a common cottage industry in which poor women work, mostly in inadequately ventilated conditions. The study explains the genotoxicity in bidi rollers occupationally exposed to tobacco dust. The chromosome aberrations and comet lengths in blood cells of rollers were found to be significantly higher than controls and the increase was proportional to the duration of exposure.
