From: Emissions generated by sugarcane burning promote genotoxicity in rural workers: a case study in Barretos, Brazil

  Confidence interval  
   Mean SD DM SD of difference Lower Upper p-value
Control Lymphocytes (N = 27) 1.11 1.28 −8.59 0.89 −10.43 −6.75 <0.001

Cutters Lymphocytes (N = 16) 8.87 4.05 −13.87 1.78 −17.68 −10.07 <0.001
Buccal cells (N = 16) 22.75 5.78
  1. N number of subjects per group considered in the analysis, SD Standard Deviation, DM Differences of the mean, considered statistically significant when p < 0.05. We only considered both individuals for which the obtained information was collected in these analyses.
