Experts from the University of Chicago found in the genome of all people 1-2 dangerous mutations, which may under certain conditions cause the development of serious diseases. In some cases, mutations lead to fetal malformations and fetal death.

To such conclusion scientists during the 20-year study of the genes of the community of Hutterites from North Dakota. All members of the group had 1-2 genome gene mutation. However, mutations do not always manifest themselves. The highest risk of genetic mutation has not on the media, and its offspring, the chance of the existence of pathology in which increased significantly.
