A high rate of marriage among deaf individuals can explain the increased frequency of connexin deafness in the United States and may have led to a doubling of its occurrence during the past 200 years, according to a study by hereditary deafness experts at Virginia Commonwealth University."

It's simply called values, identity and culture. Most of the Deaf people have known each other growing up in the same school or from the same group of friends and they fall in love with each other later on. My parents were like that, they knew each other when they were young children and then fell in love with each other when they both were in their young teens.

yes but connexin 26 is a recessive trait meaning that the deaf parents don't necessarily hvae the trait. It usually affects hearing parents who both carry the gene, though doesn't mean that 2 connexin 26 people won't...in fact two people who are deaf due to connexin 26 mutation can only have deaf babies.

That's what scares the hell out of me about all this new technology. If they can look at your DNA in the womb how many more abortions will take place. What about employers screening potential applicants, or insurance companies not wanting to insure you because you may be predisposed for colon cancer or something.

I hope the federal government will pass laws to protect our privacy when it comes to DNA testing.
