Nutrition and baby's health

Most books and articles about prenatal nutrition and child development focus on health after conception, that is, after a woman realizes she is pregnant. In reality, nutrition--both the mother's and father's--impacts a child long before conception: both the sperm and ova are derived from tissues that are also subject to free-radical attack. This fact is especially important for the mother, because she carries the same ova cells throughout her reproductive life.

Many things we do, and to which we are exposed, have an affect on these delicate reproductive cells, For example, the huge number of free radicals produced by exposure to pesticides and heavy metals, extreme exercise, and prolonged poor nutrition will produce the same cellular damage to the sperm and ova as it does to other cells in the body. In fact, because of the rapid turnover of sperm cells, their nutritional needs may be even greater than cells that divide less often.
