Mother’s Diet Influences Sex of Baby
A new study finds that a mother’s diet during pregnancy influences the sex of the baby, giving new meaning to the old adage, “you are what you eat.”
Oysters may excite the libido, but there is nothing like a hearty breakfast laced with sugar to boost a woman’s chances of conceiving a son, according to a study released Wednesday.
Likewise, a low-energy diet that skimps on calories, minerals and nutrients is more likely to yield a female of the human species, says the study, published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, Britain’s de facto academy of sciences.
Ironically, that pretty much corresponds to how the sexes eat later in life.
