In brief: Blond/slow/seizures

For babies born without newborn screening this is a significant risk.
They have blonder hair than they should( metabolic thing), develop slowly and eventually have seizures and diminished intellect. State screening programs have been screening for this since the 1960's, and rarely miss a case.
