New Data On Birth Defects & Seniors And Tooth Decay

A new study finds that babies born to women over 40 years old who use assisted reproduction have fewer birth defects.

According to Australia doctors who found infertile women aged 40 and older using techniques such as in vitro fertilization had less than half the rate of birth defects than fertile women of the same age.

The Center of Disease Control and Prevention says that seniors may have higher rates of tooth decay or cavities than children. They say it's mostly in part because of the lack of care available to them. Studies say that more than 25% of seniors haven't seen a dentist in years.
