Will it be a boy…or girl?
It looks like one old wives’ tale might actually be true. A recent Dutch study
states that pregnant women may be able to control the sex of their unborn baby by eating and avoiding certain foods.
The study monitored 32 pregnant women over five years. The women ate a calcium- and magnesium-rich diet containing foods like fruits, vegetables and rice, and were restricted from eating foods high in potassium (which is thought to lead to boys.) The results were overwhelming- 80% of the women gave birth to girls! The institute that conducted the study plans to pursue a similar experiment that encourages the birth of boys.
