Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is unfortunately becoming more rampant than ever. This paper will discuss the causes, symptoms and preventions of it. Infants should not have to grow up with disabilities if it can be avoided. Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) can be prevented.

Worldwide, one to two infants born have FAS for every 1,000 infants born (Columbia, 2004, p. 1).
