Father's sperm may pass on obesity. [from The Age] : 12 Dec 2011

Did you see this? I grabbed this from The Age in Melbourne on the 5th of this month.

AUSTRALIAN researchers have discovered that the sperm of overweight fathers appears to carry a molecular signal that causes their offspring to inherit obesity.

The preliminary study indicates that obesity in the offspring is more evident and severe in females than males.

The work by the Robinson Institute Research Centre for Reproductive Health, at the University of Adelaide, has so far focused on microRNA expression on the sperm of mice.

The next move will be to recruit people into the study of paternal dietary signals carried in sperm and their impact on offspring.

The research was presented at the World Congress on Human Reproduction in Melbourne, which finished yesterday.

Because the transfer of the obesity factor is a biological process, not a genetic one, a father who loses weight and gets fit is less likely to pass on obesity to his children, according to the research.

A little conversation piece for you to whip out when the time is right.
