This measure introduced to babies who are born and especially to those who were given up for adoption and their descendants would improve the quality of life by means of a preventive nature of the disease prior detection.

It is less costly for Social Security to articulate the appropriate mechanisms for the prevention of diseases that its identification, shuffle various diagnoses, and therefore further treatment.

Inherited diseases are a group of genetic diseases characterized by transmitted from generation to generation, ie from parents to children, the offspring and may or may not manifest at some point in their lives.

Estimates by the World Health Organization, there are currently about 6000 common diseases and syndromes, affecting 6% of world population. Most are genetic diseases that can cause severe disability to death at an early age. Most of these diseases and syndromes are unknown to the general public.

They are sick of "orphan diseases" which is ill defined because few in each, in proportion to the population. There are thousands of rare diseases, which cause untold suffering to the sick, first in the process of diagnosis, which in the absence of appropriate elements and methods of diagnosis for these rare diseases, lost a fortune on treatment error, without results and often aggravating their suffering. And finally, the cruel reality for most common genetic diseases there is no choice but to save lives. "

This problem is compounded by the adoptees and their descendants to the diagnosis of your disease do not have references from your family medical history.

In autosomal dominant inheritance, the abnormality or abnormalities usually appear in every generation. Every child with an affected parent has a 50% chance of inheriting the disease.

In autosomal recessive inheritance, the parents of an affected individual may not show the disease. On average, the possibility that the brothers and sisters of a child affected with the disease are 1 in 4. Men and women are equally likely to be affected.

In the inheritance X-linked recessive, the incidence is much higher in men than in women and, because the abnormal gene is carried on the X chromosome, males do not transmit to their children but to all daughters. The presence of a normal X chromosome masks the effects of X chromosome with the abnormal gene. Thus, almost all daughters of a man infected with the disease appear normal, but all carry the abnormal gene and their children therefore have a 50% chance of receiving the defective gene.

In dominant inheritance X-linked, the presence of a defective gene appears in females even if there were a normal X chromosome present. Since males pass the Y chromosome to their sons, affected males will not have affected sons, but all his daughters will be affected. Sons or daughters of affected women have a 50% chance of contracting the disease

One of the most revolutionary advances in medicine in recent times: the genetic markers, pieces of DNA able to trace the genetic material for genes shabby.

Genetic testing is different from the usual medical tests to which its results are invariant over time, and therefore do so only once. Predict the risk of genetic diseases, and sometimes these results are of great value to establish genetic counseling to affected families and relatives.

This measure will also drastically reduce the current statistics that indicate the occurrence of a particular genetic disease is the leading cause of death in children under 14 years.

This is why we ask you to sign the petition to get genetic karyotypes include medical records and to circulate among his acquaintances to get the best possible support in this campaign in pursuit of good health of all.

Thanks in advance to all.
