An older mother has an increased risk of having a child with Downs Syndrome but since so many more young women have babies there are more babies that have Downs Syndrome that have young mothers than have old mothers.
You think it is "some kind of programming". I think you just don't understand. Sometimes we hear on the news about things that aren't that important and we don't hear about the things that are important. Things may not be put in ways so people can understand. For example, immunizations are good for society even if they don't benefit individuals. My (adult) son had a dT shot yesterday and the information sheet they gave me actually said this. Yet parents don't read the sheets or don't understand that the reason we give so many immunizations is for society not for the child.
