" Dear Susan, you must have heard of AIDS and Sexually transmitted diseases. It is an epidemic and bringing more deaths to world. Checkout http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AIDS

More than 25 million people have died of AIDS since 1981.

Africa has 12 million AIDS orphans.

Young people (under 25 years old) account for half of all new HIV infections worldwide - around 6,000 become infected with HIV every day.

Could you do some justice in your statements. I pray for you that you do justice."

aids is common in sexually repressed countries like the muslim ones where homosexuality and prostitution is rampant together with lack of sanitary assistance, education of women and prostitution (both legal and illgal).

That's why Iran is full of aids infected people.

Breeding with your cousin cause mental problems, ask any western doctor that's not indoctrinated with muslim propaganda.


However, there is now some evidence that the children of consanguineous marriage face a hightened risk of developing a range of genetic disorders. Whilst the risk may be marginally increased with the first generation to be born from such a relationship, the risk increases down the bloodline with each successive consanguineous marriage. Physical deformities, heart disease, mental retardation, deafness, perinatal mortality, and blindness are reported as amongst the more common genetic fallout from these sorts of relationships. The results can be seen clearly in a country such as Saudi Arabia where, as one Saudi doctor put it, genetic mutations that occured 10,000 or 20,000 years ago have become genetic markers for specific tribes because of the inbreeding that has taken place over this period.
