I'd love to see some stats on NHS costs in first cousin marriage areas.
Something on R4 about it this morning and some horrificly disabled children being born. (a 5 yr old who can't talk, is blind, has misformed bones and has a short life expectancy)

Can't find a reference to the Bradford study.

Apparently it's such a sensitive issue that someone has to read a carefully worded statement off a leaflet and then refer couples to a GP for genetic testing.
Whoever you are, I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.

If you mention this you are racist. That is why no one talks about it. But it is no secret that first cousin marriages cause considerable health problems for any resultant kids. Also as you say it tends not to just one problem but several different problems. Hence the reason it is discouraged in most religions. In more primitive times these kids would have died but now we have the means to keep them alive and treat them, however this is also very costly, add the costs of treating the elderly and this country will collapse under the cost of the NHS.
George Osborne July 2013; 'I don't think in the current environment a house price bubble is going to emerge in 18 months or three years.' Mark Carney September 2013; ' ... there has been an improvement in prices and activity (talking about the housing market) Osborne to cabinet as quoted in the Indie October 2013; "Hopefully we will get a little housing boom & everyone will be happy"

Osborne says; “Printing money is the last resort of desperate governments when all other policies have failed.”

George Osborne December 2008; “Savers and pensioners are the forgotten victims … They are innocent bystanders and it’s simply not good enough for the Government to walk on by."

In his 1997 Budget speech, Gordon Brown said, "I will not allow house prices to get out of control and put at risk the sustainability of the future". He went on to say that he did not want a return to "instability, speculation and negative equity" of the 1980's and 1990's.

Conversely, children of mixed-race parents are the least likely to suffer from genetic diseases, in theory.

I say 'in theory' because I understand that the issue of race is so sensitive no conclusive study has been performed.

Are you implying that races are somehow genetically 'different' and that mixing their genes therefore makes people stronger genetically?

You know that opens you to the charge of implying that some races, because they are 'different', may actually be better at certain things than others on average?

Racist!
