Risk assessment for teratogens has received much less attention than carcinogens. This may be due in part to the lack of biologically based dose-response models for teratogens. Also, there appears to be a perception that cancer risks far exceed teratogenic risks for most chemicals. This perception may be due in large part to the stringent practice of using conservative procedures to restrict cancer risk estimates to one in 100,000 or lower whereas procedures used to restrict teratogens may… CONTINUE READING
