    Autism Study

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/23/he...zophrenia.html

    The research team found that the average child born to a 20-year-old father had 25 random mutations that could be traced to paternal genetic material. The number increased steadily by two mutations a year, reaching 65 mutations for offspring of 40-year-old men.

    The average number of mutations coming from the motherís side was 15, no matter her age, the study found.

    Re: Autism Study

    I seem to remember a similar finding regarding the female egg. The older the female became, the more the probabilty of a genetic out-lier such as Downs Syndrome.
