From the CDC: Did you know?
One of every 5,000 baby boys is born with hemophilia, and about 20,000 males in the US currently live with the bleeding disorder.
Hemophilia can lead to joint disease, pain, and death if the bleeding can’t be stopped or if it occurs in the brain or other vital organ.
You can subscribe to CDC: Did you know? and other topics on the CDC subscription page.
