Poor diet for dad leads to huskier kids

A new study says that dads who didn’t eat very well while growing up are more likely to produce kids who will be heavier. This appears to be nature’s way of preparing the next generation to store food better for survival, but can end up creating weight problems for the next generation.

If your father didn’t have much meat or other protein on the table while he was growing up, you may be more likely to produce and store fat, according to recent research.

While this could help you survive starvation, it also puts you at higher risk for some diseases.

The dietary conditions fathers experience may influence genetic expression in future generations, said scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the University of Texas at Austin.
