Day 4 of 99 Days to FASDay

Welcome to day 4 of 99 Days to 9/9:  September 9 – International FASD Awareness Day. 

Day 4 of 99 days to 9.9 FASDay

In a 1993 study, sixteen pairs of twins, all heavily exposed to alcohol prenatally, were evaluated. They represented all available twins of alcohol-abusing mothers who were on the patient rolls of the authors. In two pairs, one twin had fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), while the other had fetal alcohol effects (FAE). In 2 other pairs, one twin had no diagnosis while one had FAE.

More information on this study can be found here.
