A couple of eye-opening studies were recently released that showed how non-DNA information is picked up by the sperm and transferred to the offspring. The information passed along seems to be a current snapshot of the guy’s state of health – trauma, emotions, overeating, sleep deprivation, current infection etc. These studies were done on mice, not men. Although there is no relation to a John Steinbeck novel it shows that men pass on more than DNA genetics – so guys take care of yourself. You need treatments and healthy lifestyle as much as the one carrying the eggs.
Treatments with acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine as well as good lifestyle (diet, exercise, sleep) all improve sperm health and quality.
