ORGANS OUTSIDE THE BODY.
The CDC estimates that just under 2,000 babies are born each year with gastroschisis.
One baby in 7,000 can have the defect.
But the EXACT causes of the defect are still unknown, and scientists do not know why it is happening more and more.
“Public health research is urgently needed to identify the causal factor(s) contributing to this increase,” the report says.
THAT'S ODD...IT'S BEEN CLASSIFIED AS A BIRTH DEFECT CAUSED FROM RADIATION, ENVITONMEMTALCONTAMINANTS AND A FEW SPECIFIC DRUGS FOR DECADES NOW.
THEY'RE NOT GOING TO DIG UP SOME VIRUS TO BLAME?
MAYBE MOSQUITOES, LIKE WITH THE RECENT MICROCEPHALY BIRTH DEFECT SPIKE?
In gastroschisis, the intestines, and sometimes other visceral organs such as the liver and stomach, protrude through a hole next to a newborn's bellybutton.
Though the abnormality can be life-threatening, it is often surgically repaired soon after birth. But because the affected organs are irritated by their exposure to amniotic fluid inside a mother's uterus, they can twist, swell, shorten and become infected.
As a result, babies born with the defect can have ongoing digestive and feeding problems.
Some also have difficulty staying hydrated and absorbing nutrients from food, which can increase their risk of a range of medical problems, including stunted growth and malnutrition.
The increased incidence of the defect has affected babies born to women across the spectrum of age and ethnicity.
[NOTE: Keep that CDC statement in mind for future reference, as they seem to be leaning toward blaming the NEW spike on age and race of the mother.]
But most cases of gastroschisis occur in babies born to mothers younger than 20.
CDC said this fact was unchanged by a notable decline in births to teen mothers.
SOMETHING ELSE TO KEEP IN MIND...
CAUSES OF BIRTH DEFECTS?
"A teratogen is any substance that can cause or increase the chance of a birth defect.
Radiation (including x-rays), certain drugs, and toxins (including alcohol) are teratogens.
Whether a birth defect occurs depends on when, how much, and how long the pregnant woman was exposed to the teratogen.
Exposure to a teratogen most commonly affects the fetal organ that is developing most rapidly at the time of exposure.
For example, exposure to a teratogen during the time that certain parts of the brain are developing is more likely to cause a defect in those areas than exposure before or after this critical period."
IT'S FAIRLY COMMONLY SEEN NEAR CHERNOBYL, AND ELSEWHERE...LIKE AROUND THE HANFORD FACILITY.
[Studies by Lowell E. Sever, an epidemiologist with Battelle's Seattle Research Center, and others reported an association between neural tube defects and the radiation dose fathers received before their children were conceived.
This effect was observed in children whose parents received low doses (10 rem or less) of external whole-body radiation while working at Hanford.
A child's exposure to radiation before birth is linked to problems such as childhood leukemia, mental retardation, small head size and lower IQ.... KEEP THIS IN MIND.]
DID THE CDC FORGET IT HAD ALREADY REPORTED ON THIS "NEW" SPIKE IN THIS BIRTH DEFECT 4 YEARS AGO?
IT WAS "NOTICED" IN THEIR ANNUAL REPORT IN 2012.
IT ISN'T THAT "NEW". IT'S JUST BECOME MORE WIDELY REPORTED SINCE THEN.
http://html.scirp.org/file/_13-1330400_5.htm is a table showing rises in 5 distinct birth defects discovered in 5 western states, including Alaska and California in the 8 months following the Fukushima disaster.
"A 2010-2011 increase in birth defect rates was observed for each of the five states, including Alaska (+69.52%), California (+11.88%), Hawaii (+3.90%), Oregon (+8.87%), and Washington (+15.53%). Compared to the −3.77% decline for all other U.S. states."
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) publishes national data collected by state health departments on incidence of five congenital anomalies in the nation.
These include Anencephaly, Cleft Lip/Palate, Down Syndrome, Omphalocele/Gastroschisis, and Spina Bifida/Meningocele  .
Approximately 7500 cases of these five defects occur in the U.S. each year.
As of mid-2014, the CDC web site contained complete birth defect data for the years 2007 to 2012.
THOSE 5 DEFECTS WERE COMPARED TO THE LEVEL OF THESE DEFECTS IN THE SAME TIME PERIOD FOUND IN THE OTHER U.S. STATES:
% Ch. Rate
% Ch. Rate
% Ch. Rate
% Ch. Rate
% Ch. Rate
"Building on the considerable epidemiological evidence of a radiation-congenital anomaly link, plus the knowledge of biochemical actions by radiation that lead to in utero anomalies, a much stronger effort is called for to better quantify the relative doses and the corresponding risk involved in radiation-induced birth defects."
THESE STATS ALSO ARE SIMILAR TO WHAT WAS AND IS BEING FOUND IN THE CHERNOBYL REGION, AND IN BIRTH DEFECTS THAT HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO BE REPORTED IN JAPAN SINCE 2011.
[NOTE: No published reports exist on the change in congenital defects rates in Japan after the March 2011 meltdown at Fukushima. THE ABE GOVERNMENT HAS FORBIDDEN IT.
The Japanese government has a past history of censoring negative information about health damage caused by corporate malfeasance, as in the mercury poisoning cases during the ’50s and ’60s, the HIV-tainted blood cases in the ’80s, and the Dioxin contamination problem in the ’90s. It has often avoided detailed epidemiological studies that might show a wider range of harm.
In the Minamata mercury poisoning case, the central government even worked with the polluting corporations to minimize evidence showing the cause and range of the illness, in consideration of the negative economic impact such revelations would have.]
ALMOST IDENTICAL SETS OF "RARE" BIRTH DEFECTS HAVE RISEN SHARPLY IN IRAQ, DUE TO DEPLETED URANIUM LEFT THERE FOLLOWING BOMBING AND SHELLING BY AMERICAN FORCES.
LIKE CHERNOBYL, THERE IS PLENTY OF VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHIC DOCUMENTATION OF THE DEFECTS THERE, ESPECIALLY AROUND FALLUJAH.
" Some of the more common defects on the rise in Fallujah General Hospital:
Gastroschisis (babies born with their intestine protruding outside their bellies),
Hydrocephalus (babies born with “water on the brain, abnormal brain swelling),
Encephalocele ( neural tube defect in which babies are born with sac-like protrusions from their heads),
spina bifida (backbone and spinal canal are not closed before birth, creating gaping hole in the babies’ backs) and cleft lip and palate."

"The 1986 meltdown at Chernobyl produced numerous reports of certain congenital anomalies among populations subject to fallout from the stricken reactor. One documented a doubling of congenital developmental anomalies among infants born to fathers who worked as liquidators to contain the meltdown  .
Various analyses presented elevated congenital anomaly rates in various parts of the Belarus region, which received the greatest doses of radioactivity from the meltdown, in the years following Chernobyl  - .
Other research also found high birth defect rates in the Ukraine   , Bulgaria  , Croatia  , and Germany  - including areas with fallout levels well below those Belarussian sites closest to the reactor."
Among 145 437 live births in Rivne between 2000 and 2009 are included 2348 (1.61%) infants with anomalies noted before one year of age.
This analysis concerns eight congenital malformations henceforth referred to as a group of cCM that includes conjoined twins, teratoma, NTD (NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS) , microcephaly, mOPH, OM, gastroschisis, and exstrophy of the bladder.
FROM THE U.K. , 10 May 2012
"NINE families here ON ONE STREET have children who have been cursed with the same congenital deformity.
One baby was born just two weeks ago, while another is still in the womb.
You might assume I am at the site of some nuclear disaster — Chernobyl, perhaps — or visiting the aftermath of an environmental catastrophe.
But you would be wrong.
All nine of these families have lived on, or next to, a single quiet street in leafy Kent.
So what is going on?
Is it all just a coincidence, or is something on or near this street placing pregnant women and their children in danger?
Nobody knows for sure what causes gastroschisis but researchers think that environmental pollution could be a factor, with several focusing on a weed killer called atrazine, which is intended to increase the yields of crops.
In 2010, a study by the University of Washington School of Medicine concluded that women living within 25 kilometres of areas sprayed with atrazine were more likely to have babies with gastroschisis than those living nowhere near it.
It also found the condition was more prevalent in babies conceived in spring, when spraying of the weed killer was most active.
A professor at the University of California even claims the herbicide has the ability to change the sex of frogs from male to female.
In 2004, authorisation for the sale of atrazine across the EU was withdrawn, a move which was widely interpreted as a ban.
But recently, an Environment Agency report came to light which revealed that atrazine had been found in ‘elevated’ concentrations less than half a mile from Waterdales during a routine survey in 2008.
THE LEVELS OF ATRAZINE HAD BEEN RULED "SAFE".
The Drinking Water Inspectorate, the independent regulator of public drinking water, says it has reviewed all the water samples for the area supplying Waterdales dating back to 2004 and found that none failed water quality standards for atrazine.
Last week some of the mothers of children affected by gastroschisis met Meradin Peachey, director of public health for Kent, who told them that the levels of atrazine found were well within European safety levels of two microgrammes per litre.
She also said the nearby landfill sites contained only ‘inert’ materials."
DID THEY ADDRESS THE ONGOING, OLD CLAIM BY DOCK WORKERS THERE IN KENT ABOUT OVEREXPOSURE TO RADIATION WHILE BUILDING NUCLEAR SUBMARINES IN THE 1980s?
WERE THE FATHERS OR MOTHERS OF THESE NINE BABIES RELATED TO AFFECTED DOCK WORKERS?
"50 dockyard workers have made claims so far.
"It's a very important case and it's of great importance within the Medway towns that people are treated fairly.
"Thousands of people worked in that nuclear facility ensuring submarines went out on time during the Cold War."
RADIATION AS A CAUSE OF BIRTH DEFECTS AND CANCERS HAVE BEEN WELL DOCUMENTED FOR OVER 60 YEARS NOW, BUT THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY AND THE AGENCIES WHO PROTECT THAT INDUSTRY CONTINUE TO TRY TO DENY THESE LONG-PROVEN, ADMITTED FACTS.
THE GOVERNMENT DENIED HELP AND DENIED RESPONSIBILITY TO 'DOWNWINDERS' IN NEVADA, TO RESIDENTS NEAR HANFORD, EVEN AFTER THE PLANNED RADIATION RELEASES, THE EXPERIMENTS CALLED "THE GREEN RUN ", TO MILITARY PERSONNEL WHO WERE HUMAN GUINEA PIGS BEFORE AND AFTER THE TWO BOMBS WERE DROPPED ON JAPAN, DENIED CLAIMS OF OUR VETERANS AFFECTED BY AGENT ORANGE, DEPLETED URANIUM, THOSE WHO SUFFERED RADIATION POISONING ABOARD THE USS RONALD REAGAN WHEN THE DAIICHI PLANT BLEW.
THE DAMNABLE GOVERNMENT IS A PRO AT DENIAL, AT COVER-UPS, AT SIDE-STEPPING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THESE THINGS.
MEANWHILE, LET'S WATCH THE MEDIA FOR THE NEXT "NEW" SPIKE AND THE NEXT "NEW" ALARMING BIRTH DEFECT SINCE THE JAPANESE DISASTER AND OUR OWN OUTDATED, CRUMBLING NUKE FACILITIES ALL STARTED LEAKING LIKE SIEVES.
WHAT WILL IT BE NEXT?
DOWN SYNDROME OR CLEFT PALATE?
SPINA BIFIDA AND OTHERE NEURAL TUBE PROBLEMS ARE ALREADY REPORTED AS ELEVATED, SO IT WILL HAVE TO BE DOWN SYNDROME OR CLEFT PALATES/LIPS.
AND SURELY THE CDC WILL FIND THAT A REACTION TO, OH, MAYBE OXYGEN OR TO BLUEBIRDS OR SOMETHING EQUALLY LUDICROUS IS TO BLAME...ANYTHING BUT THE "ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM"...AMERICA'S INCREASED RADIATION LEVELS.
WE PITY THE CHILDREN, THEIR DISTRAUGHT PARENTS, BUT PITY WILL NEVER FIX THIS.
ONLY AN END TO NUKES, ALL NUKES WILL, AND EVEN THEN, IT'D TAKE THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEFORE THE EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR WASTE, NUCLEAR ENERGY STOPPED CAUSING SO MANY WORLDWIDE DEFECTS, CANCERS AND ILLNESSES.
ONCE RADIATION ENTERS THE GENE POOL, IT IS THERE FOR A VERY LONG TIME. IT AFFECTS GENERATIONS.
THE TEA ROOM INVITES READERS WHO DOUBT THIS TO DO A SIMPLE SEARCH FOR "IMAGES BIRTH DEFECTS CHILDREN OF CHERNOBYL".
OR "IMAGES BIRTH DEFECTS CHILDREN OF FALLUJAH"...
SEARCH ON ALL CATEGORIES FOR
"BIRTH DEFECTS CHILDREN NEAR HANFORD" ...
"BIRTH DEFECTS CHILDREN NEAR SELLAFIELD"...
"MUTATIONS NEAR THREE MILE ISLAND" ...
THESE ARE STILL SEEN IN BABIES BORN YESTERDAY, LAST WEEK, AND....TOMORROW....
NOT ONE CHILD SHOULD BE BORN WHO SUFFERS BECAUSE OF THE LIE OF "CHEAP , CLEAN ENERGY".
WHAT VALUE IS PLACED ON ONE HUMAN LIFE?
THEY ALWAYS SAID THERE IS NO WAY TO MAKE IT "CLEAN".
IT POLLUTES EVERYTHING....
"Each year, enormous quantities of radioactive waste are created during the nuclear fuel process, including 2,000 metric tons of high-level radioactive waste(1) and 12 million cubic feet of low-level radioactive waste (2) in the U.S. alone.
More than 58,000 metric tons of highly radioactive spent fuel already has accumulated at reactor sites around the U.S. for which there currently is no permanent repository.
Even without NEW nuclear production, the inventory of commercial spent fuel in the U.S. already exceeds the 63,000 metric ton statutory capacity of the controversial Yucca Mountain repository, which has yet to receive a license to operate. "
NUCLEAR WASTE PERMEATES THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT....AND US.
OR, AS OPPENHEIMER SAID ABOUT RELEASING THE MONSTER.....
IT SIMPLY CANNOT BE TAMED...NO NUCLEAR REACTOR IS SAFE, NOT ONE.
NO RADIOACTIVE PARTICLE CAN ENTER A HUMAN BODY AND DO NO HARM...EACH ONE IS A POTENTIAL KILLER.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS, OUR MADMEN CREATED A MONSTER, AND THEY HAVE NO WAY TO DISPOSE OF IT.... WE WILL PAY FOR THEIR ERROR FOREVER.
