A man's fertility depends more on his mother's lifestyle than his own, research suggests.
A large-scale review of factors affecting sperm production found that how a woman looks after herself in pregnancy could have a major effect on her unborn baby's ability to father a child in adulthood.
Smoking and exposure to pesticides and traffic pollution all do more harm in the first weeks of life than in the adult body, according to Richard Sharpe, one of Britain's leading reproductive biologists.
Professor Sharpe also said that while damage done in adulthood can be undone by kicking bad habits, damage inflicted in the womb was probably permanent.
