Och för fäderna som tror att deras vanor inte spelar någon roll; visa dem denna studie och fråga om de vill att deras barn ska bli kryptorchida (testiklarna vandrar inte ned) eller få hypospadi (urinröret sitter på utsidan av snoppen).
”This study reports the novel findings that paternal pesticide exposure is a risk factor for cryptorchidism and that paternal smoking is associated with hypospadias in the offspring.”
Studien tog också upp att mammans leverne rörande giftfritt spelar in – men jag tycker det är viktigt att de i studien även fokuserat på FÄDERNA!
”Women who ate organically produced food during pregnancy had halved likelihood of giving birth to a boy with hypospadias compared to women who never or seldom did so.
These are findings from a new study from the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa) at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, newly published by Environmental Health Perspectives.
Hypospadias denotes a male urogenital anomaly in which the opening of the urinary tract is not positioned exactly at the tip of the penis. This condition arises during fetal life, and is surgically corrected after birth.
This study shows that mothers who report eating organic food within one or more of six food categories, had less than half the probability of delivering boys with hypospadias compared with women who reported ”never or seldom” eating organic food.”
