PBA, my point on the other thread was that they have the genes whether or not other people (or even they themselves) know about it- anyone who discriminates based on that would just be ignoring the fact that they probably have the same number of these mutations.

However, to prevent this thread from turning into the last one, I’ll sit back let the scientific reality get mangled.

Okay, looking back on the responses, Menachem Melamed knows his stuff. This is a moot point.

Chances are, whoever you marry (if he/she an Ashkenazi Jew by heritage, even on one side) has at least one of these mutations. They don’t affect you. They only have a 25% chance of giving a disease to each of your kids in the worst case scenario.

You’re turning these into bogeymen.
