Babies who look like dads are healthier than those who look like mums, new study reveals, and some mothers may not feel happy about this since these kids wouldn’t take after them.
This new study was conducted from Binghamton University, State University of New York. It states that infants who look like their father at birth have the highest chance of spending enough time with their father. As such, these kids are more likely to be healthier on the first birthday. According to Professor Solomon Polachek, research professor of economics at the university who said: “fathers are important in raising a child, and it manifests itself in the health of the child”.
That is because babies who look like their dad get more attention from them. And, the more time those babies spend with their father, the more healthier they become.
However, this study does not apply to babies who are born by parents who live under the same roof since fathers are abso-certain-lutely that the babies are theirs; over their wealthy responsible for the entire family.
The information, such as how often the babies suffered from asthma attacks, the number of healthcare visits, or the duration of emergency visits, collected by scientists helped them to measure the babies’ health.
Professor Polachek said: “we find the health indicators improve when the child looks like the father”. He continued his speech by saying: “the main explanation is that frequent father visits allow for greater parental time for caregiving and supervision, and for information gathering about child health and economic needs”.
The study says that the relationship between father and child has resemblance and caregiving behaviors has a true root in the theory of evolution. What then is that theory? This theory says that parents spend more time looking after children who are genetically related to them, which increases the odds that babies will grow up, have their own offspring and pass on their genes.
