Babies born with Spina bifida, anencephaly and other neural tube defects – for every 1,000 live births…
USA: .75 for every 1,000 live births
China, Shanxi: 14 for every 1,000 live births
That’s 18.7 times more neural tube malformed babies born in Shanxi than in the USA. (ie: partial brain, spinal cord on the outside etc.)

I just can’t bring myself to post the photos of the children online. If you must, go to Google and search for photos of “shanxi china pollution birth defects”. It doesn’t much matter whether the “SafeSearch” is on or off: Send the children out of the room first.
