Natural Antimutagens for Environmental Quality Management and Transition to Ecological Civilization

Conference paper
Part of the NATO Science for Peace and Security Series A: Chemistry and Biology book series (NAPSA)

Abstract

Environmental management is critically dependent upon the practice of ecologically friendly “green” technologies and in changing the life styles of human populations to an ecologically friendly mentality. The transition to an ecological minded civilization requires an intense educational process of the public to increase their knowledge of the serious condition of the environment. The presence of a “green” mentality in the population will mitigate the environmental impacts associated with the use of a variety of dangerous chemicals and carcinogens with mutagenic properties. In addition, the potential for some species of plants to be used to mitigate this environmental impact is exciting and very real.
