Dear Two Views,


I have a question regarding the, let's say risks, of second cousin relationships. The political issues are rather obvious since it is in the family no matter how you measure it. I was wondering, however, is the "biological" problem associated with first cousin relationships also attached to one involving second cousins? Or would one be able to say that in that regard there is a line between first and second cousin relationships, so that the only pertinent consideration with 2nd cousin relationships is a political issue? You find alot on the ill affects of first cousin ( common bloodline ) relationships but nothing on where such problems are no longer an issue ( biologically speaking)
