Stanford study: Mammals can 'choose' sex of their babies
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Calif. (KGO) -- What if you were able to choose the sex of your baby? Well, according to research from Stanford, you already can.
Biologists studying mammals at the San Diego Zoo say expectant moms have the ability to choose whether to have a boy or a girl.
But there's a catch. They say it's not a conscious decision.
Researchers say the female body subconsciously factors in a host of environmental and societal factors and then just makes the call.
They also say there's no question that humans do this, they just don't know exactly how.
