    There are lots of Asian and black people with Down syndrome, I was sat across from a young Asian boy with Down syndrome on the tube the other day actually.

    stupid question.

    To answer the other guy's question, Yes, most likely!

    Don't tell me you didn't know that DS can be fatal?? it causes isues with the heartfro a start, many people with downs syndrome don't have long life spans.

    are you troll?
    why am I a troll? I know that some people with down's syndrome have heart problems, but I didn't think all of them had it.

    They don't all have heart problems. Apparently, about half are born with heart problems.

    Just recently seen two Muslim children with Downs. They do exist.
    What does their religion have to do with this?

    I don't mean to be rude mate, but did the fact that they had down's syndrome contribute to their death? My cousin has it so your comment makes me feel worried for her.
    Well one accidentally died and the other one died because of her condition (but this was 17 years ago). They both died young. Some people with down's syndrome die young but most grow up to live normal healthy lives thanks to modern medicine.
