Etnisk ulighed i dødfødsel og spædbarnsdød i Danmark

Undersøgelse publiceret Ugeskrift for Læger 16. november 2009:

Konklusionen lyder (på medicinsk):

Dette studie dokumenterer betydelig overdødelighed tidligt i livet i Danmark blandt børn af tyrkiske, pakistanske og somaliske minoriteter sammenlignet med majoritetsbefolkningen. Det var bemærkelsesværdigt, at andre minoritetsgrupper ikke havde øget dødelighed.

Forståelse af sundhedsadfærd og mønstre for konsanguinitet blandt minoritetsgrupperne samt mere viden om kvaliteten af sundhedstilbuddet for etniske minoriteter er bydende nødvendige, hvis etnisk ulighed i muligheden for at overleve første leveår skal overvindes i Danmark.

Det betyder på godt dansk, at fætter-kusine ægteskaber sandsynligvis er årsag til øget dødelighed blandt de nævnte grupper. Og for Hodjas regning: at sociale og økonomiske forhold IKKE kan forklare forskellene – øv det var nok en bet for Godmenneskene.

45% af arabere er indavlede ifølge arabisk ekspert

Fætter-kusine ægteskab i Saudi:

The couple had two healthy boys, now 22 and 20, but their third child, a girl, was born with spinal muscular atrophy, a crippling and usually fatal disease that was carried in the genes of both parents. Their fourth, sixth and seventh children were also born with the disorder.

Spinal muscular atrophy and the gene that causes it, along with several other serious genetic disorders, are common in Saudi Arabia, where women have an average of six children and where in some regions more than half of the marriages are between close relatives.

Across the Arab world today an average of 45 percent of married couples are related, according to Dr. Nadia Sakati, a pediatrician and senior consultant for the genetics research center at King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Riyadh.

Muslimsk indavl medfører galloperende sundhedsudgifter i UK

Muslimske børn i visse områder har 13 gange større risiko for at blive født med arvelige defekter end ikke-muslimer på grund af arrangerede fætter-kusine ægteskaber.

Denne dokumentar belyser, hvordan politisk korrekthed tillader dette at ske i det moderne Storbritannien og Europa.

S: Intet “berufsverbot” mod Pegida-stifter

Det har ikke været muligt at få en kommentar fra Frank Jensen, da han onsdag er på økonomiudvalgsseminar, men han henviser til Socialdemokraternes gruppeformand på Københavsn Rådhus, Lars Weiss.

Han siger til Jyllands-Posten at det grundlæggende er helt på sin plads at tage afstand fra Nicolai Sennels holdninger, men at hvis Jonas Bjørn Jensen ønsker at bringe hans ansættelse op til debat, så grænsen nået.

“Hvis der er et ønske om at bringe Sennels ansættelsesforhold op til politisk behandling, så er det ikke socialdemokraternes holdning og så er det ikke i orden,  helt overordnet fører vi som politikere ikke enkeltstående personalesager, hverken i medierne eller andre steder. Det er en opgave for forvaltningen og ikke for politikerne,” siger han.

Muslimer og indavl: Muslimsk ekspert udtaler at antal konsanguinøse ægteskaber er underrapporterede

Muslimer og indavl: Bradford Royal Infirmary Hospital er et af Verdens førende centre for genetik pga byens store pakistanske befolkningsgruppe

Selvom pakistanske fødsler i UK kun udgør 3% af britiske fødsler udgør de 30% af alle britiske genetiske sygdomme.

Bradford Royal Infirmary har registreret mere end 140 recessive genetiske sygdomme mod normalt 20-30.

While the BiB cohort includes a total of 43 different ethnicities, the largest ethnic groups were Pakistani (45%) and White British (just under 40%).

In the Pakistani subgroup, 77% of babies born with birth defects were to parents who were in consanguineous marriages. In the White British subgroup 19% of babies with an anomaly were born to mothers over the age of 34. Links between the age of mothers and the prevalence of birth defects are already well-established.

It is estimated that more than a billion people worldwide live in in communities where consanguineous marriage is commonplace.

The Bradford/Leeds study is the first that has been able to explore the potential causes of birth defects in a population where there are enough numbers in both consanguineous and non-consanguineous groups to reach reliable and statistically significant conclusions.

Professor Neil Small, co-author of the study from the University of Bradford, says: “The research is of particular importance to Bradford, because of the characteristics of its population. Half the babies born in the city’s one maternity hospital have a parent whose family origins are in Pakistan. But the findings also have relevance to other areas of the UK and across the world in countries where consanguineous marriage is a cultural norm.

P1 Debat: Kan man være kommunal skolepsykolog og have ekstreme synspunkter?

I København forlanger flere, at initiativtageren til den danske aflægger af den antiislamiske bevægelse, Pegida, Nicolai Sennels skal fyres fra sit job som skolepsykolog. Han kan ikke praktisere fagligt forsvarligt som skolepsykolog, når han mener at store grupper af indvandrere er genetisk degenererede som følge af indavl, hævder næstformanden for socialpædagogerne, Jan Hoby. Vi tager debatten: Forhindrer Sennels synspunkter ham i at udføre sit arbejde fagligt forsvarligt? Eller er en fyring en knægtelse af Sennels ytringsfrihed og et reelt berufsverbot.

Prevalence of consanguineous marriages among shi’a populations of Lebanon.

El-Kheshen G1, Saadat MJ Biosoc Sci. 2013 Sep;45(5):675-82. doi: 10.1017/S0021932012000843. Epub 2013 Jan 10.

The present cross-sectional study was carried out in order to illustrate the prevalence and types of consanguineous marriages in the Shi’a population living in widespread territories in Lebanon including the Bekaa Valley, the south of Lebanon and the southern suburb of Beirut. Data on types of marriages were collected using a simple questionnaire. The total number of couples in the study was 1203. Consanguineous marriage was classified by the degree of relationship between couples. The overall frequency of consanguinity was found to be 28.4%.

Evidence of inbreeding depression on height, weight, and body mass index: a population-based child cohort study.

Fareed M1, Afzal M. Am J Hum Biol. 2014 Nov-Dec;26(6):784-95. doi: 10.1002/ajhb.22599. Epub 2014 Aug 11.

Our results provide the evidence of inbreeding depression on height, weight, and BMI being important in context of child health.

A cohort study was conducted during April 2013 through July 2013 in Jammu (North India) and a total of 1,270 children (5-15 years of age) were selected in a random way both from inbred and non-inbred families of five Muslim populations.

We observed an increase in the difference in mean values for height, weight and BMI with the increase of inbreeding coefficient and these were statistically significant (P < 0.05, using post hoc tests).

Consanguinity, endogamy and inborn errors of metabolism in Oman: a cross-sectional study.

Al-Thihli K1, Al-Murshedi F, Al-Hashmi N, Al-Mamari W, Islam MM, Al-Yahyaee SA. Hum Hered. 2014;77(1-4):183-8. doi: 10.1159/000362686. Epub 2014 Jul 29.

The Sultanate of Oman, like many other Arab countries, has relatively high rates of consanguinity. Reports suggest that the incidence of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) is also high in Oman. A total of 285 patients with IEM were being followed at the 2 centers involved; 162 (56.8%) were male and 123 (43.2%) were female. The history of consanguinity was documented or available for 241 patients. Seventeen patients (6%) had associated comorbid conditions other than IEM.

Der er i øjeblikket en del diskussion om muslimer og indavl, journalisterne gider åbenbart ikke undersøge kilderne, så jeg vil bringe resultaterne fra en meget hurtig litteratursøgning.

Her kommer den første:

Estimating the inbreeding depression on cognitive behavior: a population based study of child cohort.

Fareed M1, Afzal M1. PLoS One. 2014 Oct 14;9(10):e109585. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0109585. eCollection 2014.

A cohort of 408 children (6 to 15 years of age) was selected from inbred and non-inbred families of five Muslim populations of Jammu region. The Wechsler Intelligence Scales for Children (WISC) was used to measure the verbal IQ (VIQ), performance IQ (PIQ) and full scale IQ (FSIQ). Family pedigrees were drawn to access the family history and children’s inbred status in terms of coefficient of inbreeding (F).

We found significant decline in child cognitive abilities due to inbreeding and high frequency of mental retardation among offspring from inbred families. The higher risk of being mentally retarded was found to be more obvious among inbred categories corresponding to the degree of inbreeding and the same accounts least for non-inbred children (p<0.0001). We observed an increase in the difference in mean values for VIQ, PIQ and FSIQ with the increase of inbreeding coefficient and these were found to be statistically significant (p<0.05).

Fem til seks tusind danske konvertitter til islam

Flere etniske danskere vælger i disse år at konvertere til islam for at blive muslim.

Imran Shah, som er talsmand hos Islamisk Trossamfund siger:

Det stigende negative fokus på islam som religion gør, at den almindelige danskere gerne vil vide, hvad muslimerne selv mener i debatten om islam – efter at de har hørt hvad medierne og politikerne mener. Når det indgår i den dialog, er det ikke en uha-oplevelse, de får, men en aha-oplevelse. De kan godt se, at virkeligheden ikke passer med det, der bliver politiseret.
