Chemicals used in the thawing process could cause genetic changes that trigger tumors, say scientists. Co-author Professor Ulla-Britt Wennerholm, of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, said: “A higher risk of cancer in children born after frozen-thawed embryo transfer in assisted reproduction, a large study from the Nordic countries found.” Most common forms of the disease were leukemia and those affecting the central nervous system. The work did not find IVF or other types of assisted reproductive technology (ART) led to any greater risk. The link only existed for frozen embryos.
