A new study has revealed that fathers play a pivotal role in the future health of their children from the moment of conception.


The study, done by University of Adelaide, has claimed that this could help find out if the child will turn out to be obese or would develop type 2 diabetes, as it was found that seminal fluid influences a range of developmental stages of the offspring, particularly in sons, News.com.au reported.

According to the research, an embryo that managed to survive despite poor quality seminal fluid was likely to develop into a person who would be prone to disorders including obesity, high blood pressure and glucose intolerance.

Lead researchers, Sarah Robertson, said that they have begun to understand the very complex signals and information being transmitted by the seminal fluid.

Robertson added that the study has proved that the seminal fluid produces signals that the embryo absolutely needs for the best possible start to life.
