Congenital heart defects and maternal biomarkers of oxidative stress
Wow. Practically by the week we are finding more and more studies linking interuterine environment and risk of chronic diseases later in the newborn’s life. Given that oxidative stress is such a major concern with today’s poor lifestyle choices, does this mean that we will soon see increases in the numbers of congenital heart defects? The unfortunate answer is probably yes.
Then, given the links with septal defects and migraine headaches and stroke, we will probably see an increase in the rates of these associated conditions as well. Quite a rosy picture for the future, huh?
