Wives Tales that are the Real Deal #21: Bananas and Boys

August 13, 2014 1 min read

Here's an old wives' tale that I've never heard of: Eat a banana and conceive a boy. This old wives' tale says that you can get pregnant with a baby boy just by eating a banana? Sounds fishy, right? Oddly enough, it turns out that consuming a lot of potassium early in the morning increases your chances of conceiving a male child. One study examined more than 740 mothers, and 56% of the mothers on a banana-heavy diet conceived male children. Compare this to 45% of mothers on a non-banana diet who had a baby boy, and you can see why there is a correlation between eating bananas and having baby boys. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="576"] Source: itsjustabadday.com[/caption] Bananas are one of the best sources of potassium, which is why this myth persists after centuries. You certainly can't GUARANTEE your chances of having a baby boy just by eating a few bananas a day, but for parents who want a boy child, it's definitely worth trying this wives tale.
