The health effects of a bad diet can carry over to offspring through eggs and sperm cells without DNA mutations, researchers have found. The mouse study, published in Nature Genetics1, provides some of the strongest evidence yet for the non-genetic inheritance of traits acquired during an organismâ€™s lifetime. And although previous work has suggested that sperm cells can carry 'epigenetic' factors, this is the first time that such an effect has been observed with egg cells.
What's a 'bad diet'? They don't define their terms anywhere, and the paper is not available for free as far as I can see.
Obese parents risk to get obese offspring is really what the study is about. We can see this correlation in humans as well. It happens to be so that mice get fat on a fat diet where humans easier get fat on high carb diet.
