It's not first time. IVF Children are probably developing few conditions. But,This time case is serious one.

According to Telegraph,Swedish researchers used records of more than 26,000 children born after IVF treatment and linked them to registers of cancer diagnosis.

They found 53 children developed cancer, ranging from a very young age, up to 19-years-old, against an expected number of 38.
The team said this meant there was a 42 per cent increased risk of childhood cancer in these children.

The findings are published in the journal Pediatrics,CATHERINE ELTON noted ,Even if the study had confirmed IVF as a risk factor, experts say the level of increased risk is not enough to deter parents from undergoing the treatment. While IVF may bump up a tiny risk of childhood cancer, without it, many infertile couples may not have a baby at all.
So, What's your choice?The answer to that question depends on so many factors that it can't even be considered without a great deal of thought and research.
