Fetal Alchohol Syndrome

Were you looking for information about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome? Fetal alchohol syndrome is a common misspelling of fetal alcohol syndrome.
 
Fetal alcohol syndrome is one of the leading known preventable causes of mental retardation and birth defects. It occurs due to alcohol consumption during pregnancy. The condition can result in characteristics such as abnormal facial features, growth deficiencies, and problems with the central nervous system. Children with the condition may require special help in school as well as at home.
 
Although the condition is permanent, it is also completely preventable. If a woman does not drink alcohol while she is pregnant, her child will not develop fetal alcohol syndrome.
