    There was a program on TV the other day about it. Aparently we are a bit to PC to point out to certain ethnic minoritorys that it causes medical problems. The hospital in Bradford was full of them, but a lot of the local comunity denied it of course.

    Sometimes we should call a spade a spade and put up with upsetting the ill educated. I feel sorry for the poor kids born with problems because their parents were force to marry cousins or their tradition lead to that behaviour.

    In Scotland, a man may not marry his great-grandmother or great-granddaughter and a woman may not marry her great-grandfather or great-grandson.

    it is legal and the result is you see lots of consanguinity when you run genetic analaysis of certain population groups.

    Surely if the royal family have any use, it's to show the damage that inbreeding can do.

    (absolutley hypothetically speaking of course… *shudders* )

    Just reading up on this. 10% of marriages world wide are cousin marriages… of my own, One is about the size of a small moon, one is 10 years my senior, one is 6 month my junior, but gay as a window, and one's a bloke…

    Hey ho…

    If that's the same person you could still have a crack at it.

    Some married cousins who lived next door to my mum produced 2 very poorly children. The eldest a boy, grew up with severe learning difficulties and died in his late teens. The daughter had several small disabilities, cleft lip, walking problems, very bad eyesight etc. I used to look out for her at school as she was bullied during lunch time.

    5 yrs ago I ananlysed some stats:

    Muslim newborns were 3% of total U.K. births
    But they contributed to 30% of congential defects.

    If they want to practise this behaviour of cousin loving then let them breed themselves out lol

    Seems like a high % of congential birth due to Muslims.

    UK births. 700000pa. with 1% congenital defects = 7000pa

    Muslim births. 3% of 700000 = 21000.

    30% of 7000 = 2100

    Hence 1:10 muslim births would have to have congenital defects. Doesn't seem possible.

    I was asked that too and supplied papers for the stats evidence.

    I do think they should be offered councelling but it can a difficult tradition to break.

    And no not all Muslims will do that as Muslim friends said it was gross while another fell in love with his first cousin.

    Where is Jerry Springer?
