That Old Wive's Tale About Pregnant Women And Bananas Might Actually Be True
We're pretty obsessed with bananas over here. They're the key ingredient in some of our favorite treats: pudding, bread, good-for-you ice cream — we could go on forever, so we'll cut ourselves off. But thanks to an old wive's tale, a certain group of people won't ever touch those foods.
A rumor has been circulating for years that eating bananas before conception will increase your chances of having a boy. And some soon-to-be-pregnant women will do anything to have a girl, including cutting out the fruit altogether. Like many other anecdotes of the sort, most people chalk it up to an old wives' tale. But a study found that there may actually be a little truth to the ditty.
Researchers surveyed 740 women during their first pregnancy and found that those with a diet high in potassium (one of the main vitamins in bananas) were more likely to have a boy. The same was said for women who had higher calorie and sodium intakes. One myth that was debunked: Drinking plenty of milk will increase your chances of having a girl. High levels of calcium were linked to the birth of a boy.
