Mother’s diet can help determine sex of child: study

PARIS (AFP) – 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…

…While the mechanism is not yet understood, it is known from in vitro fertilisation research that higher levels of glucose, or sugar, encourage the growth and development of male embryos while inhibiting female embryos. (article)

Hmm. If true, it’s interesting that it works like that. If only my parents had known about this…they already had a son and were hoping I was going to be a girl! So they picked out a girl’s name for me, bought all these girl baby clothes, and then I came along. They gave me a boy’s name, but kept the girl clothes, so for the first few months of my life I was a crossdresser.

  1. i luv how you give the entire world and their mothers ur life story. bahahahaha!

    So BAAAAAAAAD diabetes-loving diet yields boys, whereas the nutrient diet of SURVIVAL yields girls. I’m a survivor, baby! (pun INTENDED)

    Based off the current state of my diet, I will be having boys. LOTS and LOTS of BOYS. Not that I’m currently knocked up, or in the perpetual state of knocked-up-ness. But, just hypothetically speaking, WERE I to get knocked up, I’d be having nothin by boys. Sugar, how I love thee~!
