This concept not only explains the previous difficulties in the elucidation of both the nature of oncogene- 34 Health and Toxicology sis and the course of neoplastic diseases but also unifies in thermodynamic terms all known theories of neoplasia. It demonstrates their compatibility with our present knowledge of neogenesis as well as with the description of prerequisites for carcinogenesis put forward by sciences such as physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, sociology, and ecology. For many scientists, such terms as "cancer," "neoplasm," and "tumor" seem interchangeable and carry the same meaning as for the general public.

8 ppm or less of SO2 was also found. 5-1 ppm. Therefore, persons with bronchial hyper-reactivity are more likely to develop bronchoconstriction as a result of inhaling concentrations of SO2 that are well tolerated by normal subjects. Nitrogen oxides are generated mainly by power plants and automobile fuel combustion. The effects of NO2 on pulmonary function is incompletely understood. Nitrogen dioxide in high doses (40 ppm) is a prominent airway irritant. Results of studies on the effects of exposure to low levels ( 0 .
