The pollution causes deformities of the fetus



Experts warn that the number of children born with malformations due to pollution, late pregnancy and poor lifestyle is constantly increasing, reports Reuters Health.
Annually, in a safe country with a high degree of pollution, 1 million children are born with malformations of the limbs, heart, nerves, or other types of physical defects.
The number of such congenital malformations is increasing and the incidence rate of 60 out of 1000 births has tripled compared to the countries with high degree of development.
Parents, especially urban couples, have children at an older age than so far, which increases the risk of malformations that occur due to pollution in urban areas and unhealthy lifestyles.
The researchers warn that action must be taken as soon as possible because about one third of children born with such problems die shortly after birth.
