PostSubject: High calorie diet linked to boys   Tue Apr 22, 2008 9:02 pm

A woman's diet around the time of conception may influence the gender of her baby, research suggests.
The study suggests a high calorie diet at this time - and regular breakfasts - might increase the odds of a boy.
The researchers say the modern trend to opt for low calorie diets might explain why the proportion of boys is falling in developed countries.

The study, by the Universities of Exeter and Oxford, appears in the Royal Society journal Biological Sciences.

scratch This puts all I learned at school in the shade. I was taught that it is the man who determines the sex of a baby. Perhaps the high/low calory intake is dependent on what daddy eats and not what mummy eats scratch

Well Ichthus, never having had children, I wouldn't know about
the 'diet' side of things.

Food and diet seem to be more and more in the news for one
reason or another. Trouble is, we get told one thing, then a
few years later we get told something else. One minute we are
told to eat 'more' of something then get told it doesn't really
make any difference to do so.

As for the 'boy or girl' issue, I think that if we are not careful
we are going to end up with 'designer' babies where not only
will people be choosing the 'sex' of their baby, but also other
characteristics.

What happened to the days when new parents were just thrilled
to have a healthy baby, boy or girl ?
