..Thus, glue snuffle appeared to be a risk factor for abnormal cell growth via up-regulation of ribosome biogenesis. ..
Mondal N, Ghosh S, Ray M. Micronucleus formation and DNA damage in buccal epithelial cells of Indian street boys addicted to gasp 'Golden glue'. Mutat Res. 2011;721:178-83 pubmed publisher
..Thus, addiction to tobacco among the street children in India is associated with chromosomal and DNA damage in BECs and the severity of these changes is significantly increased by the habit of sniffing/huffing of industrial glue. ..
