What Are The Reasons For The Astronomical Increase In The Number Of Children Not Resembling Their Fathers?
I assure that I am not up to any mischief; but has anyone noticed that there seems to be an astronomical increase in the number of children who do not look like their fathers nowadays? Many fathers now seek resemblance in their children’s toenails or strain to find it in an occasional smile that resembles their great-grandmother’s.
I am wondering: Is it something men now eat or fail to eat? Or has it got anything to do with the rise of ‘women liberation’ or maybe western religions? Abi another thing dey for inside the matter? Perhaps, Dr Ugo Egbujo may help us here.
Note: This is an innocent Public Service Concern. As the Policeman at the road corner would say, it is at best a call to ‘‘stop and search’’. No fighting ooo!
Chigbu Moses corroborated saying “the University of Seattle, USA, uncovered a similar confusion in a recent research outcome. That women absorb and retain the DNA of every man they have slept with. However, the longer the period of staying with a particular man as in the case of marriage, the dominant gene will be the longest partner to the extent that both begin to resemble each other. But every child will have some DNA of every man the mother had slept with.” How about that?
Mr. Gbenga Bolejo-ojo substantiated that; the rate of DNA tests and the devastating resultant effect of such tests in face of reality require more honest confession from the present core of Nigerian women.A medical report based on a research carried around 1986 and was aired on NTA ;the report had it that over 60% of first-born in Lagos were not from their legal fathers.
Many DNA tests these days have shown that many of Nigerian women are dishonest and we wonder then the kind of youth we produce these days.
Mr. Charles Adaramoye added saying, It did not just start today. I overheard some wild statistics the other day, when it was being suggested that up to 80℅ of first born are not from their biological father. Whereas if you asked me, i will say the figure is higher. I don’t want to blame most women who eventually got pregnant after trying so many suitors in order to know which one is capable of fathering a child in a world full of men with low…count!
…you the reader, what is your opinion?
