World Birth Defects Day: March 3, 2015
Posted on 2nd April 2015

Every year nearly 8 million babies around the world—6 percent of all births—are born with a serious birth defect.1 In many countries, birth defects are one of the leading causes of death in infants and young children.2 Babies who survive and live with these conditions are at an increased risk for long-term disabilities. In the spirit of global partnership, CDC and the International Clearinghouse for Birth Defects Surveillance and Research (ICBDSR) are collaborating with 10 other organizations to implement World Birth Defects Day (World BD Day)
There are two main categories of birth defects.
1.... Structural Birth Defects
Structural birth defects are related to a problem with the structure of body parts. These can include:  a...Cleft lip or cleft palate    b....Heart defects, such as missing or misshaped valves    c....Abnormal limbs, such as a clubfoot     d...Neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, and problems related to the growth and development of the brain and spinal cord
2....  Functional or Developmental Birth Defects
Functional or developmental birth defects are related to a problem with how a body part or body system works or functions. These problems can include:
a....  Nervous system or brain problems.These include intellectual and developmental disabilities, behavioral disorders, speech or language difficulties, seizures, and movement trouble. Some examples of birth defects that affect the nervous system include Down syndrome, Prader-Will syndrome and Fragile X syndrome.
b...  Sensory problems. Examples include hearing loss and visual problems, such as blindness or deafness.
c....  Metabolic disorders. These involve problems with certain chemical reactions in the body, such as conditions that limit the body’s ability to rid itself of waste materials or harmful chemicals. Two common metabolic disorders are phenylketomiria and hypothyroidism.
d....  Degenerative disorders. These are conditions that might not be obvious at birth but cause one or more aspects of health to steadily get worse. Examples of degenerative disorders are muscular dystrophy and X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy, which leads to problems of the nervous system and the adrenal glands and was the subject of the movie "Lorenzo’s Oil."
Some birth defects affect many parts or processes in the body, leading to both structural and functional problems.
My advise
1...   Every year about 9 million children are taking birth as defective.
2...   Every couple wish to give birth to a healthy child.   According my opinion the children should be healthy and brilliant
3...   The couple should follow healthy habits and healthy food to avoid birth defects.
