An article published in the journal Bioscience Hypotheses suggests that our feelings in our lifetime can affect our children.

Dr Halabe Bucay suggests that a wide range of chemicals that our brain generates when we are in different moods could affect ‘germ cells’ (eggs and sperm), the cells that ultimately produce the next generation. Such natural chemicals could affect the way that specific genes are expressed in the germ cells (epigenetic inheritance), and hence how a child develops.

In his article Dr Alberto Halabe Bucay of Research Center Halabe and Darwich, Mexico, suggested that the hormones and chemicals resulting from happiness, depression and other mental states can affect our eggs and sperm, resulting in lasting changes in our children at the time of their conception.

Brain chemicals such as endorphins, and drugs, such as marijuana and heroin are known to have significant effects on sperm and eggs, altering the patterns of genes that are active in them.

It is well known, of course, that parental behavior affects children, and that the genes that a child gets from its parents help shape that child’s character.” said Dr Halabe Bucay. “My paper suggests a way that the parent’s psychology before conception can actually affect the child’s genes.

This is an intriguing idea,” commented Dr William Bains, Editor of Bioscience Hypotheses. “We wanted to publish it to see what other scientists thought, and whether others had data that could support or disprove it. That is what our journal is for, to stimulate debate about new ideas, the more groundbreaking, the better.

One Response to “Is Happiness Inheritable?”

    Your tohhguts and words on the vaccine aspect mirror mine and my daughter’s, almost word for word! My younger daughter, her husband and their two little ones live with me. Both the children are autistic. I would never go so far as to tell someone that life with these two is always roses and sunshine, lovely interactions all the time because, well gee, they are two small children ages 5 and 3 and when is life with two kids in that age group ever all just wonderful and calm, etc. They are children, same as all other kids except the way they process information and express themselves may often be a tad convoluted. But they are learning and we are adjusting. And they are just plain beautiful, exciting, interesting to have them as part of my life. I am doubly blessed with these two grandchildren is my opinion -with or without autism. Just love them to pieces, do whatever you can to help them learn as much as possible, treat them just as you would any other child. Just my tohhguts on this.
