The Cleft Lip and Palate problem
is the highest in one gulf country.
That country has a higher rate
of marriages in between cousins.

Is that conclusion applicable in
India with 14 lakh children suffering from this problem?

There must be an
indepth study of this suject
because 14 lakh children are
suffering due to society's
