The nonactinic environmental agents that have been found to induce mutations in laboratory mammals are almost without exception of a single chemical class, alkylating chemicals, whereas this class is only one of the numerous sorts of environmental agents that induce congenital structural malformations. Many other types of chemical teratogens as well as nonchemical teratogens exist. This conspicuous difference between the known means of producing these phenomena reflects the fact that the mechanism by which malformations and mutations arise are for the most part distinctly different from each other. Therefore, environmentally induced malformations and mutations cannot be equated with each other and used as mutual indicators in monitoring potential harmful effects of the environment.
