    Default You are what your mother eats ^^

    I shudder about the consequences of a public wide diet program...

    You are what your mother eats, study

    Women who eat cereal for breakfast have an increased chance of having sons instead of daughters, a British study has found.

    "Here we have evidence of a natural mechanism that means that women appear to be already controlling the sex of their offspring by their diet,''

    How does the Royal-Society always come up with these strange perceptions..?

    But... women don't determine the sex of their babies. Does cereal kill off the girls, or make a woman more likely to pick a man-making man?

    What if your mother lives in Japan, and works in the AV industry?

    Oh dear.

    That doesn't make any sense. Men determine the sex of the child because they carry the x and/or y chromosome in the sperm cell that determines the gender.

    Might be that what you eat make's the egg more open too one or the other chromosome, but seems abit far fetched. Try it out on 5000 more and if the results are around the same I might look that way.

    It doesn't matter what you eat, what determines the sex of a child is the chromosome of the spem cell that fertilized the egg cell. If it was an X, it's a girl, if it was a Y then it's a boy.
