Scientist Says H1N1 Swine Flu Virus Could Damage Brains of Unborn Children


A neuroscientist at the University of Minnesota medical school has published a paper saying the H1N1 swine flu virus could pose problems for unborn children. Hossein Fatemi has published a new paper saying the virus, which is causing the deaths of people across the globe, could damage the developing brains of babies before birth.

Fatemi says the virus changes the genes that allow brain growth and development in an unborn child and some of the genes the virus affects are tied to the development of mental disorders.

“Prenatal viral infection led to altered gene expression in the hippocampus, including autism and schizophrenia candidate genes,” he told the London Times.
