Lifestyle Choices Influence Reproductive Health Through Epigenetics

The reproductive system’s developmental and functional processes strongly rely on dynamic, yet faithful, epigenetic mechanisms from early development to adulthood. The pre-conception health of men and women, along with the in utero environment, have a direct impact on epigenetic modifications in sperm and oocytes (eggs). Therefore, lifestyle choices are key to safeguarding your health, fertility and the health of future children.
