US Thalidomide SurvivorsMost people believe no "thalidomide babies" were born in the U.S. Learn the Truth
How Many Thalidomide babies Were born in the US?
Every source from 1962 through 2019 has quoted an incorrect number of “thalidomide babies” born in the United States. FDA records obtained by a survivor in 2012 suggest that dozens of babies were never identified or officially counted.
The official FDA count released in the 1960s was seventeen thalidomide babies born in the United States. Nine of them were born to mothers who took samples made by American drug companies. Eight other mothers said they obtained the drug in other countries.
We have reasons to believe there were many more. Random House will release a new book in 2022 with the previously unpublished details and suspicions raised by the original FDA investigation.
