Smoking or drinking during pregnancy can make your baby GAY, claims professor


Smoking or drinking during pregnancy can make your baby GAY, claims professor




Book suggests pregnant woman's choices can affect baby's lifestyle
Suggestions made in Professor Dick Swaab's book We Are Our Brain

A controversial new study claims that decisions made by women when they are pregnant can affect
their babies brains including determining their sexuality, intelligence and chances of developing autism.
The suggestion that the lifestyle of an expectant mother can affect their offspring's development
has been put forward in Professor Dick Swaab's new book We Are Our Brains.
The professor of neurology at Amsterdam University claims that the chance of having a child
who is gay can be determined by a range of factors including how stressed pregnant women are
as well as whether they smoke and their exposure to amphetamines.

Pregnant women suffering from stress are also more likely to have homosexual children of both genders
because their raised level of the stress hormone cortisol affects the production of foetal sex hormones,' 
Swaab said reported The Sunday Times.

The development of the brain is such a delicate process during pregnancy that Swaab believes any small 
changes can have a major impact on a person's life.
A key example of this was in a study which found that women who took the synthetic estrogen
DES when pregnant were more likely to have daughters with bisexual or homosexual tendencies.
The drug was widely prescribed to pregnant women as an anti-miscarriage drug for more than
20 years and researchers found that eight of the 117 DES daughters studied had bisexual
or homosexual tendencies, while none did in a carefully selected 117-woman control group.

Some traits are dictated by nature. 
Research has previously found that boys with older brothers are more likely to be homosexual than
those with sisters, younger brothers or no siblings at all.
For every older brother a man has, the chances of him being gay increases by 33 per cent,
according to Canadian psychologist Ray Blanchard.

Former Aston Villa, West Ham and German international footballer Thomas Hitzlsperger who
announced he was gay earlier this month has five older brothers and one sister.
The report suggest that this could be due to a mother's immune system developing
stronger responses to the male hormone produced by boy babies during each pregnancy.
Another link was an expectant mother's alcohol consumption which can affect how new
brain cells integrate into the growing brain.

The NHS advises pregnant woman that if they choose to drink they must 'protect your baby by
not drinking more than one to two units of alcohol once or twice a week, and don't get drunk.'
And Swaab says that studies show the pronounced effect alcohol can have on children.
'Even in women who drink just a glass of wine a day we see effects (such as) lower IQ
and hyperactivity.'Other links made in the study suggest that exposure to traffic fumes and 
industrial air pollution can dramatically increase a mother's chances of having a child with autism.
Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health found the risk was doubled for women living
 in the most polluted locations.
'Our findings raise concerns since, depending on the pollutant, 20 per cent to 60 per cent
of the women in our study lived in areas where risk of autism was elevated,' said lead scientist 
Dr Andrea Roberts.
