Scientists conducted a study, which found that mothers who resort to IVF procedure, prefer conception girls, avoiding male embryos. This is due to the reduced risk of developing autism. It is known that during IVF, the risk of developing this disease increases four times, writes Zee News.
Mark Bowman, head of the Australian company Genea, reports that in the Wake of the global analysis revealed that one in 20 pair of parents is conducting a genetic analysis of the future of the fetus in order to avoid such diseases in children, cystic fibrosis and autism. Someone chooses the sex of the child, based on data on the risk of depression and increased activity.
Note that in Australia prohibited the selection by gender, but the national Board of health permits this procedure, if it is to avoid global genetic disorders.
