Dr Jeremy Schraw - Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, USA

Dr Schraw speaks with ecancer at AACR 2018 about the increased risk of children with non-chromosomal birth defects developing one of a host of childhood cancers.

Based on data from 4 US states between 1992-2013, researchers identified links between a range of birth defects and an increased risk of specific cancers.

Schraw emphasises that the overall risk of disease is low, and that no causal relationship can be proved, but that future research could clarify the relationship between disease types.
