Fetal Alchol Syndrome

Were you looking for information about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome? Fetal alchol syndrome is a common misspelling of fetal alcohol syndrome.
 
Fetal alcohol syndrome is a condition directly linked to alcohol consumption during pregnancy. It can lead to birth defects, mental problems, and behavioral problems, among other things. However, the condition is also completely preventable. If a woman does not drink alcohol while she is pregnant, her child will not develop fetal alcohol syndrome.
 
Some of the common symptoms found in children with this condition include growth deficiency, central nervous system problems, and abnormal facial features. There are also problems that a person with this condition may not be born with, but may acquire later in life. These secondary effects include drug use, trouble at school, and employment problems, among others.
