Women With Heart Disease Have Baby Girls

Women With Heart Disease Have Baby Girls
A new study suggests that women with heart disease will likely give birth to baby girls.

Good news for single men: The number of women in the population will likely be rising in coming years.

The occurrence of heart disease continues to increase, and researchers have found an interesting by-product.

Women with heart disease are more likely to give birth to female babies.

A study presented Friday at the World Congress of Cardiology relayed some staggering statistics. The study was the first to examine the correlation between maternal heart disease and a baby’s gender.

The researchers examined 216 babies born to women with heart disease. Of the 216, 200 were female. The study suggests there is a 75 percent chance that a woman with heart disease will give birth to a baby girl.

“This is a very interesting observation,” said Kathryn Tauber, Ph.D., chief science officer of the World Heart Federation. “The chromosomes in a man’s sperm are responsible for the sex of a baby, but this study does suggest that there may be a relationship between the health status of the mother and the sex of the babies that she is able to carry to full-term. As the number of women with heart disease is increasing around the world, this could prove to be a very interesting area for further research.”

    Then how come my daughter in law has 2 boys and only 1 girl (the firstborn) when she has a very serious heart condition and has many, many stints, even in her legs?

    Would say she is the exception that proves the rule. They did say not every woman would do this, but it is an overall trend. Of course, there will be women who don’t have heart disease who have nothing but girls, and women with heart disease that will have nothing but boys, but the trend goes toward those with heart disease having more girls.

    Oh great ! Just when I’ll be too old to care….but good news for all of those Chinese .

    I doubt this phenomenon has anything to do with the sex of the baby. It’s probably simply this; women are giving birth at an advanced age more than ever. By the time we are in our 30′s most Americans have begun to build plaque in the arteries. So, it stands to reason that women in their late 30′s and even on into their 40′s would have a certain amount of heart disease. I don’t believe the sex of the baby plays into this senario and is probably a coincedience.

    This has nothing to do with heart disease, but the PH of your body, which has been known for more than 50 plus years. A female fetus thrives in acidic conditions, and the the male in non-acidic. And all diseases thrive in acidic conditions, like (heart disease, cancer, etc).
    You want more male babies, change your diet…

    I agree it has nothing to do with heart disease itself but both (heart disease and higher female baby rate) are result of something else, most likely age of mother. Also, if 200 of 216 babies were female that would be over 90% propensity for female babies – not 75% like the study suggests.

    So, what does it mean if she has a girl, then a boy the second time? I think this is bs and a waste of money. Live and let live and stop putting fear into everything.
