The Male Biological Clock

2 Apr

 

So there is a timer on the male reproductive system as well. Who knew?? it may not be as dire as a female’s but it IS there.

There are some proven differences between children of younger males and older males, subtle but still there.

The recent study out of Australia shows a number of disadvantages to those conceived by older men than younger.

  • The odds of concieving drop considerably if the man is over the age of 35
  • Children conceived by young men are actually smarter than those conceived by older men
  • The chance of schizophrenia increases in children who’s father is over the age of 30
  • A chance of bipolar disorder is at its highest when the father is over the age of 55

Just to list a few. Check out all the facts in the New York Times article here
