Most birth defects are caused by toxins the mother ingests when she is pregnant. Alcohol, smoking cigarettes, caffiene, and other drugs. But no one wants to take responsibility for their own actions these days. They look for something else to blame it on.

Indeed, there are several reasons as to why children develop these kinds of birth defects. However, one cannot disregard that the environment also contribute to these kinds of problems because it is also considered as an external factor. It is also true that smoking and medications may also cause this kind of problem and they are also considered external factors.
