Genetic functionality of the offspring related with the diet of the parents

In addition to the environmental influences, it has been now ascertained that the diet of the parents at the time of conceiving the offspring might also affect the quality of the genetic makeup of the foetus to some extent. For instance, an unhealthy parental diet may be responsible for the augmented production of cholesterol synthesis genes in the offspring. The diet plans that led to the increased synthesis of cholesterol were mostly the ones that were devoid of the proteinaceous foods. In an advanced version of this study, it was ascertained that poor diet during the paternal grandfather’s adolescence was responsible for exposing the grandkids to an increased risk of developing diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
