3 facts about Down syndrome

World Down’s Syndrome Day on 21 March

I’d like to share 3 facts, only 3 facts for people to remember about Down’s syndrome:

1. Down’s syndrome happens because of the extra chromosome 21. (3 instead of 2)

2. Down’s syndrome is named after British Dr John Langdon Down.

3. Down’s syndrome is NOT related to Mongol ethnicity.
