Low Food Intake During Conception Indicates Baby Girl in Womb
The developed countries over the years have shown a fall in the birth of male children and researchers attributed the cause to hormonal changes due to pollutants found in pesticides etc. In a recent research conducted in Britain, it is observed that mothers with low calorie diet produced girls.
The male child requires more energy and low diet does not encourage the growth of a male embryo, so during the stage of conception though the father has a major role in the determination of the sex of the child mother’s low calorie diet may favour the growth of a female embryo, which is consistent in its growth.
Though the exact reasons are still unknown, high glucose level in blood indicates a faster growth of male embryo while overtaking the growth of the female embryo. Mother’s low food intake depressed the sugar level in the body and thereby less likely to produce a male child.
