Article here. Excerpt:

'Choosing to become a parent could end up shortening a man’s life. A groundbreaking new study reveals that fatherhood may take an alarming toll on men’s heart health as they get older. Researchers from Northwestern University and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago found that cardiovascular health tended to be worse for fathers compared to men without kids.

The research, published in the journal AJPM Focus, found that as men age into older adulthood, those who have children tend to have worse cardiovascular health compared to their childless peers. This was determined by looking at factors like diet, exercise, smoking, weight, blood pressure, and blood lipid/glucose levels.'
