    Is there an increase in birth defects among GWS?
    Some reports have suggested there is (Download) http://birthdefects.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/VA-Presentation-GW.pdf
    What I find interesting about this is the defects are mostly clustered under Neurocristopathy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurocristopathy
    I myself have Axenfeld Riegers syndrome and a parental connection to Singapour and post world war 2 but not GWS
    Are there any stats on birth defects in children born to mothers with FM ME/CFS and is there an increase in Autistic spectrum disorders in offspring?

    @wastwater Interesting graphs. Double the birth defects for some defects. We know correlation isn't causation but still...

    What is Singapour and post world war 2? Are they toxic syndromes too?
