Older men more likely to father children with disorders, research shows
Men shouldn’t wait for their later years to have kids, a new body of research has found, according to The Daily Mail. Scientists have recently found that men in their 40s or older are more likely to pass down disorders than younger men, The Daily Mail said.
“For decades, scientists have speculated about links between older fathers and birth defects,” The Daily Mail reported. “But it was only recently that a groundbreaking study, published in the respected journal Nature, proved that men undoubtedly pass on more genetic mutations to their children as they get older.”
