A new study conducted by the researchers from the Wexner Medical Center at Ohio State University has found that fathers who follow a healthy lifestyle could have a big impact on their children’s health.
The researchers have also found that men who do moderate exercise a month before conception may give their children a healthy metabolism along with a lower risk of obesity and diabetes.
According to Josiah Larowe of the American Cancer Society, a healthy lifestyle can also lower the risk of cancer in men.
Larowe said, “Knowing your body, maintaining a healthy active lifestyle and eating healthy are some of the best ways to prevent cancers of all types.”
According to the American Cancer Society’s estimation, under 2,700 men will be diagnosed with rare, invasive breast cancer this year, a type of cancer that is common in women.
Marcella Williams of The Juice Standard said, “Certain foods men are putting in their body can aid in prevention… something as simple as lycopene, which is an antioxidant that is found in certain fruits and vegetables, specifically red or pink ones like tomatoes or watermelon.”
Larowe said that apart from invasive breast cancer, men are at risk of developing cancers of prostate, colon, lung, and skin. He recommended consuming a dose of five fruits and vegetables on a daily basis to help lower your risk of cancers.
