Of fruit juices, citrus juices are effective antimutagens
Citrus is used as a model for this approach in that citrus is a rich source of antioxidants, antimutagens
, anticarcinogens, and chemoprotective compounds.

and anticarcinogens in foods.
But current scientific thinking is that mutagens in our food are counterbalanced by other compounds that are antimutagens
Major classes of CP agents include the antimutagens
(oltipraz), antiproliferative agents (retinoids), antioxidants (vitamin E), and antiinflammatory agents (sulindac).
Dietary and medicinal antimutagens
and anticarcinogens: molecular mechanisms and chemopreventive potential-highlights of a symposium.
Renner HW and R Munzner The possible role of probiotics as dietary antimutagens
Many substances reported as antimutagens
or anticarcinogens have been shown to be mutagenic or carcinogenic themselves (Zeiger, 2003).
Use of metabolically competent human hepatoma cells for the detection of mutagens and antimutagens
Bacterial test systems have been used extensively for screening purposes as well as for the bioassay directed fractionation of antimutagens
from different sources.
and anticarcinogens; a survey of putative interceptor molecules.
It is assumed that a number of antimutagens
do not act through a single mechanisms.
