Mild intellectual disability in children in Lahore, Pakistan: Aetiology and risk factors

Results The overall prevalence of mild ID was 6.2%. In 22% of the cases the onset of mild ID was prenatal with small for gestational age and multifactorial inheritance as the main underlying factors. During the postnatal period (28% of the cases), social deprivation and malnutrition were the major causes of ID. In a substantial proportion of the cases (50%), the cause of ID could not be traced.

Conclusion The present study indicates a clear relationship of mild ID with prenatal and postnatal malnutrition and social deprivation. Two independent variables, maternal illiteracy and small head circumference at birth, showed a clear association with the development of mild mental disability among children in the study population.

what a great country pakistan is, full of malnutrition, lack of iodine in water and mentally retarded kids. But they can become successful human bombs, don't worry.

Oh, I forgot, also breeding with close relatives causes craziness and mental disease. All the people from pakistan in my country all marry with cousins (you know, to get them permission to stay and other illegal things)
