Autism, schizophrenia, ADHD, and bipolar disorder risk in kids may be linked to older dads, according to research. American and Swedish researchers analyzed data from over 2.6 million Swedes. Men who fathered children after the age of 24 faced higher risks of having children with psychiatric problems or academic difficulties. The greatest risk was seen in men who fathered children after the age of 45.
