A pet is “down syndrome” if it has the genetic predisposition to suffer a range of disorders including Down syndrome, the Jerusalem Post reported on Wednesday.
According to a report by The Jerusalem Times, experts in the field of genetic disorders and disabilities have said that it is important to look for genetic predispositions and take appropriate action if one exists.
The article said the prevalence of Down syndrome in Israel was about 1.3 percent and that only 10.5 percent of all children born in Israel were born with Down syndrome.
According the report, in 2014, there were 3,400 babies born with the genetic condition in Israel, compared to 1,800 in the U.S. and 2,200 in France.
Israel is the only country in the world with a population of 100 million with Down Syndrome.
