Daddy Issues

I always thought that the age of the mother was critical.  What I never considered was the possibility that the age of the father is, too!  In the field of epigenetics, studies are finding that the father’s life experiences and hardships have an effect on his sperm and, thus, his offspring.

Some highlights:  Older fathers are more likely to pass on genetic mistakes, resulting in autism and psychological disorders in the next generation; men who grew up in famine are more likely to have offspring with diabetes and weight irregularities.
