For example, an additional 1/16 of the variation of DNA is made homozygous by the inbreeding of a marriage of first-cousins. Conversely, the probability of identifying recessive or quasirecessive susceptibility factors is enhanced by inbreeding. 7, and children born to consanguineous unions have poorer health than the offspring of nonconsanguineous unions (including malignancies, congenital abnormalities, mental retardation, and physical handicap).
