Treatment for Environmental Birth Defects

Presently, termination of pregnancy is the only option available if serious defects are detected before birth. This is a difficult ethical choice for many people and they might prefer non-intervention.

Attempts have also been made to correct abnormalities by fetal surgery i.e. surgery on the babies in the womb.

I am very interested in research into the FAS and FASD developing in babies from the paternal side. I have read in literature from USA that binge drinking young males could damage the sperm count enough to father children with FAS or FASD even if the mother does not drink whilst pregnant. Is there any UK research on this subject?
