New York: Mariños men who recognize males can have an impact on their sperm and their impact on children.
As a result of its active ingredient – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), tobacco smoke, pesticides, flame retardants and even obesity can change sperm.
Researchers at Duke University believe that THC also causes epigenetic activity that results in changes in structural DNA and regulation of sperm users.
"What we have found is that the effect of cannabis on males and reproductive health is not entirely unique, something about the use of cannabis that causes genetic profile of sperm," said Scott Duke Kollins.
"We still do not know what it means, but we must think that young men of younger age are legal access to cannabis," he added in the journal Kollins in the Epigenetics magazine.
The effect of THC rats and genes of different genes was shown, but many genes were commonly associated with two major cell-cell pathways, said senior lecturer Susan K. Murphy.
One of the ways is to reach full body bodies; The other involves a large number of genes that regulate growth in development. Both paths can be disabled in some cancers.
"In terms of developmental development, we do not know," Murphy said.
"It is unknown that THC spermatozoids may be healthy to continue to grow an egg and develop embryo," he said.
The discovery defined regular users for burning at least six months for marijuana in the last six months. Sperm counters compared to those that did not exceed 10 times more than those who did not use the last six months.
The higher the concentration of THC in men's urine, the more pronounced was the genetic change in sperm.
