Fiona Mathews, the specialist in mammalian biology at Exeter University who manages the research said : "We were able to confirm the old legend that eating bananas and so having a high potassium intake was associated with having a boy, as was a high sodium intake. But the old tale about drinking a lot of milk to have a girl doesn't seem to be true. In fact, more calcium meant they were again more likely to have a boy.
Professor Stuart West, of Edinburgh University, said women should be extremely cautious about using diet to influence the sex of their offspring because it can result in several health implications.
