Father's vitamin B9 diet may influence child's chance of birth defects
What a father eats before his child is conceived may influence the chance a baby will be born with a birth defect, a new study suggests. Much of the focus on how diet relates to birth has been done on moms.
"Our research suggests that fathers need to think about what they put in their mouths, what they smoke and what they drink and remember they are caretakers of generations to come," Sarah Kimmins, a research at McGill University in Toronto, said in a press release.
