Dr. Price’s research did not only center on the mother’s role in birth defects. He pointed out that the father’s genetic material also plays an important role in the child’s susceptibility to birth defects. A powerful example he used was a male dog which was deprived of nutrients. The dog produced pups with birth defects with five different healthy female dogs.

It is well known and accepted that birth defects can be caused by the father being exposed to certain chemicals.
