Karua dataa suvunsisäisistä avioliitoista ("FBD marriages"), mutta asiaan saattaa liittyä muitakin tekijöitä kuten naisten yleinen asema, suhtautuminen aborttiin ja niin edelleen.

Birth Defects, FBD Marriages

While researching a different topic I stumbled upon the following 2006 report on the Internet. It contains comprehensive estimates for the prevalence of birth defects all around the world. The relevant graph is reprinted below (you can click on it to get a bigger picture).

What leaps out at first sight is the sheer extent to which the worst affected countries are Muslim ones. Of the 29 countries with a birth defects prevalence of over 70/1,000 births, only 5 are not majority Muslim. 9 of the worst 10 are Muslim. Furthermore, whereas those five are all very poor African nations, the Muslim ones include very rich Arab states like the UAE, Kuwait, and Bahrain.

What explains this? Is it something in the water?

Tuolta Anatoli Karlin - Birth defects, FBD Marriages kannattaa käydä lukemassa myös kommenttiosio.

Kiitos Ruukinmatruunalle vinkistä!

Of the more than a total of 11,000 babies in the study, 386 or 3 per cent had a congenital anomaly, such as heart and lung defects, cleft palates and Down syndrome. The children were born between 2007 and 2011.

Rates of congenital anomaly were 305.74 per 10,000 live births in the Pakistani community compared with a national rate of 165.90 per 10,000.

Overall, 18 per cent of babies in the study were offspring of first cousins. Less than one per cent of babies of white British origin were born to first cousins compared with 38 per cent in the Pakistani group.

"Our findings confirm that the offspring of consanguineous unions have an increased risk of congenital anomalies, which is independent of deprivation," Eamon Sheridan of St. James's University Hospital in Leeds, UK, and co-authors concluded.
