Unborn babyís genes can boost motherís health
Belgian scientists have discovered that the health of pregnant women can be affected by the genes of their unborn babies, The Guardian has reported.

A study led by Olivier Deschamps of Jolimont medical research centre found that high cholesterol levels in pregnancy were partly determined by the foetusí genes.

The researchers said this has implications for women usually advised not to have children due to genetic defects.

A spokesman for the journal of Molecular Biology, in which the study was published, said: "Because their foetuses can compensate for their defects, these women may actually be able to bear children without complications."
