~FACTS ABOUT CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS~
~ also known as C.H.D’s ~

C.H.D’s ARE THE #1 BIRTH DEFECT

C.H.D’s ARE ALSO THE #1 CAUSE OF DEATH FROM A BIRTH DEFECT

THERE ARE AT LEST 35 KNOWN CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS

C.H.D.s ARE TWICE AS LIKELY AS CANCER IN KIDS AND TWICE AS MANY KIDS DIE EACH YEAR FROM C.H.D

1 IN EVERY 125 LIVE BIRTHS WILL HAVE A C.H.D. OF SOME KIND
(over 1/2 are lost before birth)

ANYONE CAN HAVE A C.H.D CHILD ...ANYONE !!

MOST DR’s BELIEVE THAT IT IS A GENETIC DEFECT ALTHOUGH NEW STUDIES SHOW THAT PAIN KILLERS AND ANTIDEPRESSANTS TAKEN RIGHT BEFORE AND IN PREGNANCY CAN RAISE YOUR RISK UP TO 3 TIMES ( that would be about 1 in every 50)

ONLY ABOUT 25% OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS NEEDING A HEART TRANSPLANT WILL GET ONE .. THE REST PASS AWAY

THE HARD TRUTH IS THAT ABOUT 50%WILL DIE FROM THEIR C.H.D. MANY BEFORE THERE FIRST BIRTHDAY !

C.H.D.'S ARE NOT ALWAYS DETECTED IN INFANCY... SOME ARE NOT KNOWN ABOUT TILL CHILDHOOD ~ AS AN ADULT OR EVEN AFTER DEATH .. WHEN IT IS JUST TO LATE !
