A very large new study published in BMC Medicine has shown the link between a poor diet and depression. The study looked at over 15 thousand people over the course of 10 years.

A study, led by researchers from the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research shows that a father’s weight and nutritional habits long before they have children can affect their child’s risk of obesity and chronic disease later in life.

They also looked at sperm from the same men before and after weightloss and found up to 4000 structural changes.
