First of all – Super Weird that someone did a medical study about this – But a study from Columbia University claims that “the risk of birth defects from a first-cousin child is no greater than the risk from a woman who gives birth after 40 years old.”
Researchers said women over 40 aren’t made to feel guilty about having babies so cousins should be looked at any differently.
So, your family dinner on Sunday just got more interesting…
