Can Diet Determine Your Baby’s Gender?

28 Mar

New research has suggested that  it is possible to determine the gender of your baby through tweaking the mum-to-be’s diet.

The study, carried out by the University of Missouri, found that women who ate a diet high in fat, including full breakfasts, around the time of conceiving were more likely to have a boy.

By contrast, those women who ate low fat diets and fasted for extended periods were more likely to have daughters.

As well as potentially affecting baby’s gender, the mother’s diet may also affect the future health of offspring – with sons of obese women being more likely that daughters to develop diabetes in the future.
