The Birth of Normal Babies

The Birth of Normal Babies This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract The thesis presented here is that the major cause of defective babies can be attributed to the occurrence of stress in the first trimester of pregnancy. The stress may result from a drug reaction, infectious disease, physical trauma, metabolic disease, or emotional upheaval—anything that affects the adrenals. Case examples are cited: A pregnant woman with five normal children was treated for generalized psoriasis with corticosteroids. The sixth infant had a cleft palate. Cases of mental deficiency, miscarriages, malformations are attributed to drug reactions, poison ivy, pemphigus, etc., all on post hoc, propter hoc reasoning. The writing is very simple, not even of the order of a good newspaper health column. The book is intended for lay persons—to teach them how to avoid abnormal birth results. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png A.M.A. Archives of Dermatology American Medical Association
