Baby's Gender Linked To Mother's Diet At Conception
« on: April 23, 2008, 11:01:06 AM »
New research from the UK suggests that a baby's sex is linked to his or her mother's diet around the time of conception and the finding may explain why fewer boys are born nowadays in the industrialized world, including the UK and the US.

The study is the work of researchers at the Universities of Exeter and Oxford and is published today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.

The researchers found a strong link between the consumption of a high energy diet around the time of conception and giving birth to sons.

Very interesting article.  I always thought that the man had the final say on the baby's gender, but i now know otherwise.

I have also seen studies in the past that indicate that if you conceive early in your cycle its a girl and late in the cycle its a boy..
there really are a lot of "studies " on this topic!
