What BiB parents say

“Have you thought more about your family’s health because you are part of the BiB cohort?”

“I have learnt about different kinds of genetic illnesses and about allergies that people have. I am much more aware of eating and what to avoid. My daughter has got an asthma pipe and I know about what can be done to prevent asthma. I am dusting more now, particularly the beds.”
