Abstract
  • There is a widespread misconception that only maternal variables affect in utero development.
  • Epigenetic markers carried by the spermatozoon are transmitted to the zygote.
  • Sperm-born epigenetic factors influence in utero development, for various generations.
  • Acquired traits of metabolic disease can be inherited by the offspring via the male gamete.
  • Health assessment of future fathers is essential to predict the offspring's health.
