What are the different kinds of diseases?
There are several types of diseases, syndromes, and illnesses. Some have more than one cause, or result from the body's reaction to another illness. A few major of the major kinds are: External diseases - bacterial diseases : caused by microorganisms, many parasitic, that feed on living organisms - viral diseases : caused by viruses or viroids, parasitic proteins that only replicate inside host cells Internal Diseases - genetic and autoimmune diseases : caused by the malfunction of cells, or an attack on body cells by other cells of the body - systemic diseases and syndromes : caused by imbalances in the production, function, or health of body cells (may be caused by age, diet, or lifestyle) - deficiency diseases : caused by lack of nutrients that cells require to function properly

What are potential harms of selective breeding?
Selective breeding can result in repeated transmission of deleterious genetic material, meaning the DNA code becomes more corrupt with alterations, deletions, and additions. The likely hood of chromosomal abnormalities also increases. In other words, more genetic abnormalities or diseases pop up in offspring that can result in still-births or offspring affected with a physical or mental condition for the rest of its life.

What are the chances of another pregnancy ending due to chromosomal abnormalities?
You really need to consult a genetics expert to find out the likelihood of it happening again in your particular case!!!!! Jewish people, Greeks, Afro-Americans, and other ethnic groups have an increased likelihood of certain genetic diseases. Also if there is a family history of chromosomal abnomalities, you may be at an increased risk.There are approx. 1200 different chromosomal diseases, all are somewhat rare, however if you have an autosomal dominant disease half of your offspring will inherit the disease. Fortunately, amniocentesis can diagnose these conditions.
