I am a new reader and find your information extremely interesting to say the least. I do have a question though, that does not seem to have been answered yet. It concerns alcoholism and its effects on children from conception through adolescence. I know it is well documented that a mother that is drunk all the time will cause her unborn child to be harmed and the resulting condition post birth is termed “Fetal Alcohol Syndrome”. But,
What if the father is a long term alcoholic?
Does his alcoholism alter his genetic code in a way so to harm the fetus at conception? What are the long term effects of the father’s alcoholism on the child (besides maybe his still being in the child’s life and exposing it to all the wonders of living with a drunk.)? I have seen a pattern of such cases with resulting effects and wonder what you can turn up.
