Study Links Frozen Embryo Transfer to Higher Childhood Cancer Risk

(CNN) – Children born after the use of frozen embryo transfer were at higher risk of childhood cancer, according to a new study, but the risk remains low. The study, published in the medical journal JAMA on Tuesday, looks at babies born in Denmark, a country with one of the highest rates of assisted reproductive technology. In 2018, nearly 10% of all children were born through some form of fertility treatment.
