If two people who were both suffering from hypo-thyriodism were to marry, it is possible that some of their children might be myxoedemic and mentally retarded. The risks involved in cases of epilepsy are generally known, and epileptics are advised to forgo having children. Laws prohibiting marriage between close relatives have been made because the transmission of negative hereditary factors becomes stronger the closer the blood ties are between the two people.

Mature people, who are conscious of their responsibility towards their children, will not overlook the problems and precautions discussed above, but will give them due consideration. Only in this way may they be spared much possible suffering later on. And thanks to their reasonable and sound attitude they will have the opportunity to bring healthy children into the world.
