A Fathers’ Diet Will Impact His Pre-Born Children

A report in the October 20, 2010 issue of the journal, Nature, sheds huge light on an under-appreciated impact of “a fathers’ role” on his children of the future.

There is a first time for everything, and now researchers have discovered that if a father has a high-fat diet, it can increase the genetic susceptibility of his offspring to develop diabetes.

For years, a mother’s health prior to and during pregnancy has been known to impact the health of her child, now the responsibility is officially documented to be a shared “responsibility”.

I have long preached that fertility for both men and women is more than just the ability to become pregnant. Rather, true fertility is the ability to conceive and delivery an optimally-health baby. I addressed this issue in my book on enhancing fertility.

Though this study is just the first of many, there is no question more studies will be forthcoming, confirming that when it comes to becoming pregnant, that both men and women should eat healthy, take multi-vitamins, decrease stress and avoid toxins such as alcohol and cigarettes that add to toxic burden.

It takes fertile soil, a healthy seed and a nurturing environment for a flower to bloom. Likewise, the same applies to a baby.
