Father’s high-protein diet may increase son’s ability to reproduce
Melbourne, Feb 17:Debunking the view that males just pass on genetic material and not much else to their offspring, a new study suggests that father’s high-protein diet may increase son’s ability to reproduce. Father’s diet can affect their son’s ability to out-compete a rival’s sperm after mating, said the study published in the journal Biology Letters. The study highlighted the importance of the paternal environment on future generations, even a long time before offspring were produced, said one of the lead authors of the study, Susanne Zajitschek from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. The study sought to understand if the nutritional history of fathers had an effect on their sons.
However, it’s not just your father’s eating habits that affect your sperm’s health. You can do a lot to improve and boost your sperm health and even sperm count. Eating right, not indulging in drugs, tobbacco and even alcohol, and not being exposed to too much heat can help you have better sperm health and sperm count. Stress also affects the quality and number of your sperm, so perform yoga, stay active and minimise the stressful factors.
