Diet May Influence Sex of Child

Can your diet actually determine the sex of your child? That seems to fly in the face of science, since we know that sex is determined by the male sperm. But it appears that a report from researchers at Oxford and the University of Exeter in England shows that the female body can favor the successful development of a male or female embryo.

If women skip meals, they may favor having girls. That’s odd, yet interesting. The reasoning, from the study, is that glucose levels may help determine the sex of the child, with higher glucose levels favoring boys. Skipping meals tend to suppress glucose levels.

Like so many of these off-the-wall studies, they say that results are either inconclusive or not fully understood.

While choosing the sex of your baby may sound like a novelty, women should definitely consider a healthy pregnancy diet.
