Later age pregnancies and unhealthy lifestyles are behind the country's rising number of birth deformities, health experts have warned.
At least 1 million babies are born with defects in China each year, an incidence rate of 60 out of every 1,000.
"The rate is three times that of developed countries," Professor Li Zhu, director with the National Center for Maternity and Infant Health said.
Gavin Hyatt of Witney, Oxfordshire went to the hospital with a bleeding belly button. The doctor said "It was like something from Alien. I didn’t believe Gavin when he said something was coming out of his belly button until I saw him." That something was a 4cm parasitic twin that had been stuck inside Hyatt for the last 30 years. Hyatt told The Sun:
If I where to fall pregnant and found out my child had a severe deformity I would hope that there is a law that allowes you to abort that child as young as possible. Its unfair to bring someone like that into this world, they have no choice.
