Is There Any Association Between Birth Defects And  Childhood Cancer?

A recent research has unveiled the dark side of birth defects as it was found that those who are born with such defects are more likely to face some childhood cancers and that too while they are living first year of their life. Not even this, the cancers talked about, are unique and that's what makes the situation all the more serious for one and all.

It was found by a team of Susan Carozza, a cancer researcher at Oregon State University in Corvallis. The team examined the records of children born in the state between 1996 and 2005, who were identified with birth defects and later developed cancer. It was concluded that as many as three million births occurred in Texas during that specific time, with about 4% of these being identified with minimum one birth defect. Among all the Texas kids, some
2,350 were later told to have developed cancer, and that's what made the team believe that there is some potential association between the two.

The result "does sort of point to a global relationship to whatever is driving birth defects and what is driving childhood cancers", said the lead researcher, while claiming that kids' genetics and environment have a crucial role to play in deciding if he or she would be born with such defects.
