One child in every 700 born in Britain today is a mongol. Mongolism is a common form of mental deficiency presenting a picture of delayed physical and mental development. Recent research suggests that this condition is caused by a defect in the chromosome balance within the human cell.

Penrose, M.D., F.B.S., Professor of Eugenics, University College, London and a Medical Superintendent of a Mental Deficiency Hospital.
