I choose this topic because it is a very worldwide disease that over 6000 infants are born with every year. I’ve met many down syndrome kids all around the world and would love to learn about their disease. Down syndrome is a condition in which a person is born with an extra chromosome. With Down syndrome, the extra chromosome causes delays in the way a child develops, mentally and physically. But this disease is actually quite common, as out of 700 newborns 1 will have the disease (Down Syndrome) a number of down syndrome kids depends on their nationality. Down syndrome is caused by a gene before birth, People without down syndrome usually are born with 46 chromosomes and down syndrome kid is born with 47 chromosomes this makes it so that kids with extra chromosomes, their brain and or bodies develop in many different ways. Have kids with down syndrome. Many down syndromes were abandoned by their parents as they did not want a child that did not look like everyone else. This lead to these kids not having real parents and did not have a proper upbringing.
I also learned that down syndrome is carried through genetics meaning that you may carry the disease of down syndrome. So if your kids have down syndrome, you are very likely to carry the genetics or your partner. If you have a down syndrome kid the chances of having another one is very high. Down syndrome takes serious care and should never be treated with disrespect. People with down syndrome suffer hard lives with dangerous type so living as they are faced with living only until they are only teenagers or to their 20s. They also face bullying in their junior life. Its hard being a down syndrome kid and they need to be treated properly.
