  • Hey Beauty,
     
    It’s time to get your blood checked to make sure you aren’t a Thalassemia carrier. Like your Italian grandmother, your mother, big brother and sister.
     
    Even though there’s nothing to worry about right now because you only fall for Anglo-Saxon boys with blue eyes and blond hair. But one day you may fall hard for a guy who is tall, dark and handsome, the front man for an Indie band, who drinks tequila, rides a 1952 Harley he inherited from his grandfather, eats organic peaches, and most importantly, is of Mediterranean descent.
     
    When you fall, you fall hard.  

    Just like your Italian grandmother, your mother, big brother and sister. And because you fall so hard, you might even dream of having a child one day with the guy who is tall, dark and handsome, the front man for an Indie band, who drinks tequila, rides a 1952 Harley he inherited from his grandfather, eats organic peaches, and most importantly, is of Mediterranean descent.

    You can picture this child with his father’s chocolate brown eyes, olive complexion and thick dark hair.
     
    And when this happens, you’ll want to know for certain whether or not you’re a Thalassemia carrier. Because if this beautiful guy, who is tall dark and handsome, the front man for an Indie band, who drinks tequila, rides a 1952 Harley he inherited from his grandfather, eats organic peaches, and most importantly, is of Mediterranean descent is also a Thalassemia carrier.  Then Beauty the odds are 50-50 that the child of your dreams will have full-blown Thalassemia.  

    And Beauty that isn’t something you’d wish on your worst enemy, never mind the child of your dreams.
