  Abstract:
  The data concerning the spreading of carcinogens and mutagens in the environment of Armenia are presented. These data show that soil, air, water and therefore some food products are polluted and dangerous for human health including carcinogens. Because of poor living standard in Armenia, most people consume food and cigarettes of low quality, whereas fresh fruits and vegetables are not available in enough quantity even on a seasonal basis. In many regions of Armenia the content of heavy metals and pesticides in agriculture food products exceed several times the hygienic limits. At present, we cannot recognize any appropriate opportunity to prevent cancer in Armenia.
  Key words: Mutagens; Carcinogenesis; Environmental Pollution; Neoplasms; Armenia
