42% of 'In Vitro' Conceived Children Develop Cancer, Reveals Study by University of Lund
Infants conceived with techniques used in fertility clinics, are four times more likely to have certain birth defects and malformations than children conceived naturally, according to a study by researchers at the University of Lund (Sweden). By in vitro babies, the risk of childhood cancer is great. Specifically, they have a 42 % chance of having a childhood cancer. Experts say that the figures are evident but they have not yet determined how the disease develops.
