happy as pigs in Shit!! [BD] Incest is best, when kept in the family! c-rock Contrary to widely held beliefs and long-standing taboos in America, first cousins can have children together without a great risk of birth defects or genetic disease, scientists are reporting Thursday. They say there is no biological reason to discourage cousins from marrying. First cousins are somewhat more likely than unrelated parents to have a child with a serious birth defect, mental retardation or genetic disease, but their increased risk is nowhere near as large as most people think, the scientists said. In the general population, the risk that a child will be born with a serious problem, such as spina bifida or cystic fibrosis, is 3 percent to 4 percent; to that risk, first cousins must add another 1.7 to 2.8 percentage points, the researchers said. Although the increase represents a near doubling of the risk, the result is still not considered large enough to discourage people from having children, said Dr. Arno Motulsky, an emeritus professor of medicine and genome sciences at the University of Washington, and the senior author of the report. "In terms of general risks in life it's not very high," Motulsky said. Even at its worst, 7 percent, he said, "93 percent of the time, nothing is going to happen." The report is being published Thursday in The Journal of Genetic Counseling. "As genetic advisers, we give people all the various possibilities and risks and leave it up to them to make a decision," Motulsky said. "Some might decide a doubling of the risk is not something they want to face." He and his colleagues said no one has questioned the rights of other people to have children, even though they have far higher levels of risk than first cousins do. For example, people with Huntington's disease, a severe neurological disorder that comes on in adulthood, have a 50 percent chance of passing the disease to their children. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-0204040324apr04.story?coll=chi%2Dnews%2Dhed

Doesn't have anything to do with "the South", allowing 1st cousins to marry is common practise in all European countries, and you don't see the freaks from Deliverance there either. Now keeping this up for a few generations, that's a different thing. This WILL lead to genetic defects. PS: I think I'll give Cousin Doreen a call, though, yee-HAAWW ;)

C-rock my friend, [u]YOU[/u] are living proof that the 7% ratio must be avoided at all costs! [:D]

Look at the British Royal Family. They have more genetic abnormalities than the average Joe, all the result of inbreeding for centuries. What the hell's so "royal" about being a genetic mess?

There is nothing wrong with cousin shagging. In fact, I researched my family tree and found out that about until the mid-19th century my own family was inbreeding. And, I have no genetic defects.

If that's a penis, than I'm the freak. Mine looks nothing like that. And if the risk of genetic defects in offspring is not a reason to discourage inbreeding, how about this one: you're doing your cousin. And if that's not a reason, then go ahead and move to West Virginia(but if you're doing you're cousin, chances are that's where you already live).

Fox News just ran a story on this. According to their map, it is legal in quite a few states including here in Florida.
