Environmental problems mutate baby's genes
If you refer to expectant mothers in China, in which, to be seriously speaking, has no safe food and water to eat and drink, lead, mercury, manganese, antimony, organic matters, toxic chemical compounds, pesticide, chemical fertilizer and etc, may, if those are not in large doses, chronicly and potantially toxify expectant mothers. |
For example, I've heard that the quality of tap-water in China is no better than the quality of water which is discharged to the river from sewage farm in Canada.
More another reason is that people in China like to abuse to use Chinese herbal medicines and antibiotics, both of which may have very strong side-effect. Most of Chinese tend to believe that Chinese herbal medicines have no side-effect, however, indeed they have, even they have much more side-effect than "western medicine", because China lacks time and money and talents to rigorously research of Chinese herbal medicines, and they much believe Chinese ancient tradition to figure out the value of herb.
And without doctor's prescription people can haphazardly buy various antibiotics from pharmacy if they want. And even doctors on their own behalf heartlessly urge patients to use them.
Those medicine may cause baby's genes mutated.
I always find misshapen frogs from a polluted river and lakes, such as one frog with 6 legs.
