Washington: Mild maternal hypertension early in pregnancy actually benefits the fetus, but that late-pregnancy hypertension has negative health consequences for the child, a new study has found.The study, conducted by researchers from the Centre for Social Evolution at the Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, is based on more than 750,000 births in Denmark, with follow-up data on children`s hospital diagnoses for up to 27 years."It has been known for some time now that pregnancy-induced hypertension can lead to more serious toxic conditions ( preeclampsia ), but it has puzzled biologists why such a medical condition that can be quite dangerous for both mother and child has not previously been removed by natural selection in our stoneage ancestors," said Professor Jacobus Boomsma, Director of the Centre for Social Evolution and coordinator of the study.
