Compare and contrast a carcinogen that is a mutagen to a carcinogen

For this assignment, compare and contrast a carcinogen that is a mutagen to a carcinogen that is not a mutagen. Find at least four peer-reviewed journal articles published within the last 7 years that discuss the carcinogens and the cancer that each causes.

Compare and contrast a carcinogen that is a mutagen to a carcinogen

This unit’s assigned reading focuses on chemical-induced mutagens. As you are aware from the reading, not all carcinogens are mutagens. For this assignment, compare and contrast a carcinogen that is a mutagen to a carcinogen that is not a mutagen. Find at least four peer-reviewed journal articles published within the last 7 years that discuss the carcinogens and the cancer that each causes.

Compare the means of exposure of each chemical and the type of cancer each causes. Be sure to integrate the perspective and information gathered from each article into a discussion in your own words.

Your literature review must include the following components:
An introduction of your topic of choice (include some background information on the origins of exposure and cancer), the methods used to search for the articles, the results of the articles, a discussion and conclusion with your own opinion, and APA references and in-text citations for the article.
The literature review must be three to four pages in length and follow APA formatting.

What is the relationship between mutation and carcinogen?

Not cancerous because it stays in the same place. What is the relationship between a mutagen and a carcinogen? Mutagens are things that can cause any mutation in DNA, but carcinogens are mutations that lead to CANCER. All carcinogens are mutagens, but all mutagens are not carcinogens.

Are all mutagens are carcinogens?
As many mutations can cause cancer, mutagens are therefore also likely to be carcinogens, although not always necessarily so. … Not all mutations are caused by mutagens: so-called “spontaneous mutations” occur due to spontaneous hydrolysis, errors in DNA replication, repair and recombination.
