Washington: Moderate paternal exposures, like smoking, can raise the number of mutations passed on to the coming generations, a new research has suggested.Gene mutations caused by a father`s lifestyle can be inherited by his children, even if those mutations occurred before conception.The findings also show that mutations in the germ-line are present in all cells of the children, including their own germ cells. This means that a father`s lifestyle has the potential to affect the DNA of multiple generations and not just his immediate offspring.
