Dad’s diet may impact on offspring’s future health
Conclusion This research demonstrated that a folate deficient diet given to male mice led to a higher rate of birth abnormalities in their offspring than male mice on a folate sufficient diet.

These patterns affected DNA regions that the researchers say, may affect rates of chronic disease. There are a number of large limitations to this research. The research was on a small group of mice and not people. So, this doesn’t provide sufficient evidence on which to base any new di...
