The quantity of phycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Hungarian foods and consumer goods were measured in more than 300 samples of food and other consumables. In more than 60% of the samples, pyrene, fluoranthene, benz(a)anthracene and benzo(g.h.i)perylene were detectable besides the highly carcinogenic benzo(a)pyrene (BaP). Investigational results and consumption data show that the average per man-year BaP intake with food in Hungary is 300-600 microgram.
