Trisomy 21 is a genetic anomaly where an extra piece of DNA has attached to the 21st gene pairing. It is the most prevalent. Trisomy 13 and Trisomy 18 are two other common forms.

Generally, the identifier DOWN SYNDROME is used to describe the condition, but this is a derogatory term in that it is interpreted to mean defective by the medical community, by the education system, and by the government.

The medical term does not have this negative baggage.

There is no cure for Trisomy 21, and it is in every cell in the body.

A CURE IS NOT NEEDED FOR TRISOMY 21.

The medical community promotes abortion as the cure for Trisomy 21 which is just ignorant.

Trisomy 21 is one of the fastest growing parts of the population everywhere in the world.


Part of the reason is cosmetics. Nanosized SPF formulas travel into the blood stream and alter DNA which explains why 19 and 20 year olds are carrying a large proportion of Trisomy 21 children.

Genetic engineering of crops and new generation fertilizers are also likely to play a factor. Complex chemical compounds released into the environment are also likely to play a role in the increase.

IN THE END, NONE OF THOSE THINGS REALLY MATTER.

WHAT MATTERS IS NOT ACCEPTING DISABILITY AS THE ONLY OUTCOME FOR THESE PEOPLE.

We start at square one.

A child is born with Trisomy 21, or Trisomy 13, or Trisomy 18.

 It is a baby, and it needs what every baby needs: love, affection, stimulation, nourishment, and to be a part of a family.

We do not say that the baby has DOWN SYNDROME though.

We say that the baby is Einstein Challenged.

We are not purporting a cure for the Trisomy 21; we’re just changing the expectations.
 

As a baby with Trisomy 21 that is EINSTEIN CHALLENGED, the focus is on prevention for most medical issues.

Why develop Alzheimer’s, Dementia, or Cancer?

They are not curable, but they can be preventable.

Disability is easy, but we favour ABILIZING the child through education, the creation and development of neural pathways, and nutrition to address physiological needs. It is more work, but the rewards are great.

Creating disability is easy, BUT IT COSTS MORE NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.
 

ABILIZING means work.

For the period of education, there is measurable success, but the person with Trisomy 21 has a hard life because their work never stops.

With the information we have now, they have to work at retaining what they have gained for their whole life.

Then again, we are in the early stages, and we might learn how to do things better in the future.


TRISOMY 21 is a genetic anomaly with no cure.

No cure is needed.

The development of potential is all that is required.
