Abstract:   (2217 Views)
In the present work we studied the birth order in progenies of lranian survivors of Iraqi chemical attacks during a period from 1984 to 1989. Then we compared the results with the birth order of the control group. Despite a slight difference between the birth order in the two groups of progenies, this was not statistically significant. This does not mean, however, that there are no genetic consequences due to war chemicals. A number of autosomal recessive mutants may have been produced but they will not become manifest for several generations.
