Researchers at the University of Utah have found that gastroschisis, a serious birth defect in which infants are born with their intestines and organs outside of their abdomen, is linked to STDs and UTIs contracted just before or during pregnancy. Although the causes for gastroschisis are not known, women in the study who had contracted STDs and UTIs were four times more likely to give birth to infants with the defect. Gastroschisis is also linked to age, with women under 20 more likely to give birth to children with the defect than women over 25. STDs and UTIs are said to be contracted by 1 in 4 teens and 6 out of 6 Jezebels (kidding). [UPI]
