Biomarkers in sperm may help identify men at risk of fathering children with autism, researchers say.
For the study, investigators examined sperm epigenetics -- the molecular processes that affect gene expression -- in 13 men who fathered sons with autism and 13 who had children without the disorder.
The American and Spanish researchers focused specifically on DNA methylation, a che...
A large new study suggests that men who plan to be fathers should try to get themselves in shape first.
Researchers found that when fathers-to-be had health conditions like high blood pressure or obesity, the odds that their partner might experience miscarriage or stillbirth increased.
The findings do not prove that a father's health directly affects his partner's pregnancy, experts...
Dads matter: New research shows how attentive, involved fathers can really boost the mental well-being and behavior of teens from low-income families.
The study looked at 5,000 U.S. children born between 1998 and 2000, and their fathers' involvement with them between ages 5 and 15.
That included activities such as feeding, playing, reading, helping with homework and providing non-c...
American kids have something to celebrate: Spanking has hit a new low.
About one in three parents said they spanked their kids in 2017 compared to 50% in 1993, new research shows.
"Fewer parents are spanking, and I think it's helpful for people to know that and that there are tools that are more effective than spanking," said Christopher Mehus, lead author of a new stu...
Father's Day is a once-a-year celebration of the bond between Dad and his kids, but cementing that bond takes a year-round commitment.

University of Georgia researchers found that dads who take time off work to be with their kids strengthen the bond between...
A face-lift for Father's Day, anyone?
It could happen: A new report finds many more men are taking advantage of the same plastic surgeries that have long been associated with women.
The midlife decision by men to try a face-lift or other procedure has been nicknamed the "Daddy-Do-Over" -- referencing the "Mommy Makeover" for women.
Whatever it's called, "men are em...
It's not just Moms: Just ahead of Father's Day, a new survey finds that about half of American dads say they've been criticized about their parenting styles.
The way they enforced discipline topped the list of things naysayers called them to task on, with two-thirds of critiques focused on that subject.
Forty-four percent of the time, the criticism came from a family member...
Just because a guy can make babies later in life doesn't mean it's risk-free.
The partners and children of men who become fathers at an older age are at increased risk for health problems, a new study finds.
"While it is widely accepted that physiological changes that occur in women after 35 can affect conception, pregnancy and the health of the child, most men do not realiz...
Fathers-to-be who expose their pregnant partners to secondhand smoke put their babies at risk of heart defects, researchers warn.
For the new study, investigators in China reviewed 125 studies that included a total of nearly 9 million prospective parents and more than 137,000 babies with congenital heart defects.
All types of parental smoking were...
