"It is astonishing that we have [so] many cases with this defect, which is very rare all over the world," Abudaia says. He attributes the high frequency of this birth defect to "consanguinity," or in-breeding.
"If you want to go to the root of the problem, this problem runs in families in the genes." Abudaia says. "They want to get married to cousins... they don't go to another family. This is a problem."

Wow. This is crazy that there are this many.

It is. But I think it's not just the genes, A LOT of uran-projectiles were used there.

Sad... at least both of these guys had each other to support going through the transition.

This is definitely pushing the "odd" in Odds&Ends.

This could be the beginning of a kick-*** women's track team for them.
