Whiles studies have repeatedly maternal smoking During Pregnancy Linked With Reduced Sperm Count in male children ', a new Research showed That Men Whose Fathers smoked at-the-time-of Pregnancy ALSO thought 50 per cent lower count of sperms Than With thoses non-smoking Fathers.
The Findings showed That, independently of nicotine exposure from The mother, socioeconomic Factors, and their own smoking, smoked Men With Fathers Who thought a 41 per cent lower Sperm concentration and 51 per cent fewer Sperm Count With thoses Than Fathers non-smoking.
"I was very surprised That regardless of-the mother's level of exposure to nicotine, Sperm Count-the Fathers of Men Whose Was smoked so much lower," said Jonatan Axelsson, specialist physician at Lund University in Sweden.
"We know there's the Link Between a Chance of Pregnancy and Sperm Count, So that Could Affect These Men-the possibility for the future to have children '.
"The father's smoking linked to a ALSO the Reproductive Shorter lifespans in DAUGHTERS, so everything-the notion That Depend on-the mother Smoke WHETHER or not doesnt SEEM convincing," he Added.
However, the-Research hasnt Determined Mechanisms underlying behind-the-Print. But, studies have shown links SIMILAR smoking Between Fathers and Various health outcomes in children ', Suchi as malformations, Axelsson Noted.
Could it must BE because newly occurring mutations (becomes known as de novo mutations) come via the-father and theres are ALSO Age Between-the father's links and a number of complex Diseases, Researchers said in the-the-paper Published in journal PLOS ONE.
In Addition, Observed That Researchers have linked smoking to the DNA Damage in Sperm and That Smokers have more breaks in-the DNA strand.
Fathers of Children Who Have Been Reported to smoke have up to four times as a LEAD MANY mutations in repetitive DNA as part of the-children 'of non-smoking Fathers.
"Unlike maternal-the ovum, the-father's gametes continuously divide throughout life and mutations OFTEN Occur at the precise moment of cell division.
"We know That containin MANY Tobacco smoke Substances That Cause mutations so one can Imagine That, at-the-time-of CONCEPTION, have undergone mutations-the gametes and thereby pass on genes That Result in Reduced Sperm Quality in-the male offspring," Axelsson said.
The study conducted on 104 Swedish Was Between Men aged 17 and 20-years.
