Aren't carcinogens also mutagens? 188.8.131.52 22:21, 21 August 2007 (UTC) Cancer is caused by a mutation in your own cells, so a carcinogen causes YOU a mutation. A mutagen causes mutations in your children instead, and those mutations can be further inherited by their children.Carturo222 (talk) 22:32, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
- the difference between mutagen and carcinogen described above is false. A carcinogen is a type of mutagen.--184.108.40.206 (talk) 00:47, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
This page isn't simple enough[change source]
The writing style of this article is too complicated for a Wikipedia such as the Simple English one, where simple language is supposed to be used. Someone edit it so that it sounds simpler to understand. Thanks.
