A Prescription for the Prevention of Birth Defects.
Slavkin, Harold C.
USA Today, v112 n2466 p87-89 Mar 1984
Factors influencing birth defects include maternal age (teenagers and women over 32 are at risk), genetics, drug use, diet habits, and environmental hazards. The physical, social, and economic costs of birth defects are extreme. Prevention must involve efforts to change some of these factors. (Author/CS)
