This is TOOOOOOOOOOOOO funny:
<<< Mental retardation affects about 0.6 % of the finnish population (IQ less than 70). There are some rare disorders, like AGU, INCL, Salla disease and Cohen syndrome, which are a part of Finnish disease heritage, but most common syndromes are Down (trisomy 21) and Fragile X.>>>
What’s called “mental retardation” in brilliant countries like Finland, who score at the TOP of most international tests (like the president of Noikia who I just met at the CES show who demonstrated how he can now load 300 MILLION computers with the most recently developed software in Palo Alto, California, within an HOUR of it being released), are Finns with IQ’s which are AVERAGE for you kikes.
And that’s not even considering how GRACIOUS Professor Lynn is for estimating the average IQ of “Israel” to be 92—an IQ which less than 1% of the *dumbest* Finns have:
You kikes prove once again that you are clearly too dumb to realize just how *DUMB* you are by misunderstanding this KEY point about your own cite. You certainly didn’t post this article with the intention of making Finns look GOOD, but this is *exactly* what this article says.
On TOP of that, these diseases are RARE for Finns, but the 112 genetic hereditary diseases that ONLY you kikes get, including “homosexuality”, are the NORM for you and not at all RARE:

Subject: Re: Who are the Finns?
Welcome to Rare Disease Day 2010 in Finland
In Finland Rare Disease Day is being coordinated by the Finnish Network for Rare Diseases, which is a network of 16 independent, non-governmental organisations and foundations who work for rare disease patients’ interests with the help of funding from RAY (Finland’s Slot Machine Association) and Kela (The Social Insurance Institution of Finland). The members of the network have signed a partnership agreement and are regarded as equal partners in the network. The main goal of the network is to improve the conditions of people with rare disease or disability by
– cooperating with specialists, service providers, patient/diagnosis organisations and individual patients and their families
– raising public awareness and influencing the decision makers
Finnish heritage disease – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Finnish heritage diseases are significantly more common in people whose ancestors were ethnic Finns, natives of Finland and Sweden. About 40 rare diseases …

Mental retardation in Finland
Mental retardation affects about 0.6 % of the finnish population (IQ less than 70). There are some rare disorders, like AGU, INCL, Salla disease and Cohen syndrome, which are a part of Finnish disease heritage, but most common syndromes are Down (trisomy 21) and Fragile X.
Von Wendt and Rantakallio (Upsala journal of medical sciences Supplement 1987) studied the occurrence and aetiology of mild mental retardation (IQ 50-70) and borderline retardation (IQ 71-85) on the basis of a one-year (1966) birth cohort of 12,058 live-born infants, which were followed prospectively up to the age of 14 years. The cumulative incidences for mild mental retardation were 5.5/1,000 and borderline retardation 13.4 per 1,000. In the borderline group there was a male preponderance of 2.3/1 as compared to 1.2/1 in mild mental retardation group.
Matilainen et al. (Acta paediatrica 1995) studied causes of mental retardation as part of a multidisciplinary epidemiological case-control study in 151 mentally retarded patients identified by screening four age cohorts (12,882 children) at 8-9 years of age in the province of Kuopio. Genetic causes were found in 28% of all 151 cases; the three most common subgroups were trisomy 21 (13%), fragile X syndrome (4%) and aspartylglycosaminuria (2% ).
Haataja et al. (Human genetics 1994) wrote that the majority of present-day fragile X mutations in Finland may have a common initial ancestor, probably from the 16th century.
Heikura, Taanila, Olsen et al. (American Journal on Mental Retardation 2003) followed two separate, genetically homogeneous cohorts of children born in 1966 (n = 11,965) and 1985–1986 (n = 9,432) in Northern Finland to determine temporal changes in the incidence and prevalence of subcategories of intellectual disability within the same geographic area. The children were followed up to the age of 11.5 years. There was no change in the total incidence (12.62/1,000 in each) or in total prevalence (11.03/1,000 vs. 11.23/1,000) of intellectual disability. However, in the subcategories of intellectual disability, there was a shift from severe and moderate towards mild; whereas profound intellectual disability remained at the same level. The temporal changes followed generally similar patterns by gender.
According to GAPS-page (2005) aspartylglycosaminuria is a genetic disorder that is found most commonly in persons of Finnish decent. It is a lysosomal storage disease that becomes apparent after the infant is a few months old. Major symptoms may include coarse facial features, spine and eye deformities, behavior problems and mental retardation. The disorder is caused by an glycoprotein enzyme deficiency. The recessive gene responsible for the disorder is located on the 4th chromosome at 4q21.
R. Froissart and I. Maire wrote in their Orphanet-article (2003) about Free Sialic Acid Storage Disease (SSD), also known as Salla disease. It is a lysosomal storage disease, due to a defective sialic acid transporter in the lysosome membrane normally ensuring the efflux of free sialic acid outside the lysosome. The condition is autosomal recessive and very rare – except in Northern Finland where an estimated 1/40 people are carriers.
Salla disease presents in utero with fetal hydrops and ascites or at birth with hypotonia, hepatosplenomegaly often associated with ascites, coarse facies, bone malformations, severe motor disorders, mental retardation, and seizures.
Infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis
The neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL or CLN) is a mixed group of genetic progressive storage disorders of the brain and eyes with mostly autosomal recessive inheritance. NCL affects 1 per 20,000 to 100,000 in the general population.
Estimated percentage of Infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (INCL) is 11-23% (Celia H Chang, eMedicine 2004). According to Findis.org (2004) incidence in Finland is 1/14,000. Onset in INCL is between ages 6 and 24 months. Symptoms are clumsiness, hypotonia, irritability, seizures and ataxia, microcephaly, retinal changes and severe cerebral atrophy. Life expectancy is between 5 and 10 years.
Finnish variant of late infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (LINCL)
According to Findis.org (2004) the variant form of LINCL has clinical resemblance both with the classical late infantile type, LINCL and the juvenile type, JNCL, but it is caused by mutation of distinct gene at chromosome 13q22. Incidence in Finland is 1/59,000.
Northern epilepsy (NCL8)
S. Aymé (Orphanet 2002) wrote about Finnish type epilepsy-mental deterioration. It is a form of childhood epilepsy occurring in northern Finland. The patients are normal at birth and develop normally until school age. Age at onset is 5 to 10 years, the patients presenting with generalized tonic-clonic seizures. Inheritance is recessive.
Syndrome is caused by mutations in the CLN8 gene (gene map locus 8pter-p22). Incidence in Finland is 1/176,000.
Symptoms are obesity and hypotonia in association with delayed mental development, characteristic facies, and slender hands and feet. The syndrome is divided into two forms: one which is manifested by the symptoms as outlined by Cohen and the other characterized by chorioretinal dystrophy, leukopenia, and lack of obesity, known as the Norio syndrome. According to C. García Ballesta (Orphanet 2004), nearly 100 cases had been reported.
This rare disease is overrepresented in Finland. Satu Kivitie-Kallio studied the syndrome in 1999. Nationwide examinations were performed on 29 Cohen patients, who form a highly homogenous group aged from 11 months to 57 years.
According to NIDCD Glossary (2005) autism is a brain disorder that begins in early childhood and persists throughout adulthood; affects three crucial areas of development: communication, social interaction, and creative or imaginative play.
Kielinen, Rantala et al. (Autism. 2004) conducted a population-based survey among 152,732 children and adolescents aged under 16 years and living in northern Finland. 180 children with autistic disorder were identified. Associated medical disorders or associated disorders of known or suspected genetic origin were found in 12.3%, including tuberous sclerosis, Down syndrome, fragile X syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, XYY syndrome, chromosome 17 deletion, chromosome 46, XX, dup(8) (p) and mitochondriopathy. Other associated disorders identified were epilepsy, hydrocephalus, foetal alcohol syndrome and cerebral palsy. Hearing impairments were found in 8.6% and severe impairment of vision in 3.7%t of the individuals with autistic disorder.
Marko Kielinen (Oulun yliopisto 2005) studied a prevalence of autism in northern Finland. The data were collected from hospital records and the records of the central institutions for the intellectually disabled in the Provinces of Oulu and Lapland in 1996–1997. The age-specific prevalences obtained in this study showed the prevalence to be lowest, i.e. 6.1 per 10,000, in the oldest age group of 15- to 18-year-old adolescents and highest, i.e. 20.7 per 10,000, in the age group of 5- to 7-year-old children, when the criteria of ICD-10 and DSM-IV were used. In this study, almost 50% of the autistic cases had a tested IQ above 70. Associated medical disorders or associated disorders of known or suspected genetic origin were diagnosed in 12.3%. Other associated medical disorders were epilepsy, hydrocephalus, fetal alcohol syndrome and cerebral palsy. Severe impairment of vision was evident in 3.7%.
About three- to fourfold prevalence of autistic disorders in Northern Finland was found when compared to 16 years ago, Kielinen mentioned.
PEHO syndrome (Progressive encephalopathy with Edema, Hypsarrhythmia, and Optic atrophy) is an autosomal recessive disorder leading to profound psychomotor retardation. Incidence in Finland was 1/78 000 in 2004. Only few patients fulfilling the diagnostic criteria for PEHO syndrome had been reported outside Finland.
