Overweight men warned they need to become 'match fit' if they want to be fathers


www.grub4life.org.uk today reports that overweight men have been warned they need to become 'match fit' if they want to be fathers, as a fertility study claims too much attention has been focused on mothers' weight. 28-08-2012

Scientists studying the impact obesity has on pregnancy are urging men to get 'in shape' before conceiving to assist with foetal development.
 
While the health risks surrounding obesity and pregnancy have largely been centred on overweight mothers, the onus is now on men to lose weight.
 
Less efficient sperm results in smaller foetuses, poor pregnancy success and reduced placental development.
 
The discovery was made by reproductive experts from the University of Melbourne, Australia.
