Several isothiocyanates have been proposed as promising chemopreventive agents for human cancers. However, it has been reported that allyl isothiocyanate exhibit carcinogenic potential, and benzyl isothiocyanate and phenethyl isothiocyanate have tumor-promoting activities. We investigated whether these isothiocyanates could cause DNA
