Eating fortified breakfast cereal to increase chances of having a boy?

Before getting pregnant I read in a magazine that eating a lot of fortified cereal will help your chances of having a boy. It was weird because I eat cereal usually twice a day....I had a boy! What does everyone think about that?

  • If that's true then eating Nissan Chow Mein causes you to have a girl! LOL! I was dieting before I got pregnant & ate them every day!

  • HUH?? Um, no. Sounds like a weird theory to me. That's like saying taking vitamin C will make you have a girl. One has nothing to do with the other.

  • It's bull - the MAN's ability produce the X or Y chromosome in his sperm is the ONLY determining factor in the gender of a baby. Why do you think that some families only have boys or only have girls. Cause the man only produces that particular gene. Had a very rich friend that had her husband's sperm tested after having their 3rd son - NONE of his sperm had X chromosomes to produce a daughter.
