Gender of baby - Modern times

Recommended Posts

This is in no way favoring one over the other as any child is a blessing regardless of gender. 

However pureley out of curiosity are more daughters being born then sons in recent times? I remember going back with the first generation that arrived in the UK.  Those families seem to have had alot more sons then daughters. But when I look these days. It seems the opposite has occured many more daughters are being born then sons. 

Could this be some kind of environmental factors or just plain natures choice? 

Could it be related to peoples diet, nutrition exercise??

From an evolutionary perspective, humans will produce more boys during times of stress (eg famine, war etc) because survival of the race is important; and more girls during times of rest (lots of food, relaxation) to allow more reproduction and increase the population. 

Given that the man determines the sex of the child, there have been thoughts that modern lifestyle has caused damage to men: contraceptive pill is present in drinking water, plastics and chemicals are having an oestrogenic effect, and there had been a drop in sperm quality of men.

diet has a big effect imo.

foods r more salty, spicy, sweet etc now than ever. so our bodies r naturally gna become more acidic. dnt how much of this is offset by the green veg/salad we eat tho. but even that will have different condiments on it.

the west seems to believe female sperm r stronger swimmers so theyre better suited to thrive in these conditions. whereas male ones supposedly prefer it alkaline so more healthy food n nutrition is required i.e. lots of potassium from bananas, almonds to increase rate of suvival.

The war thing could be true. I live in an area with alot of tamils who came from war torn sri lanka. Ive noticed many have more boys then girls. 

That is one thing im careful about. Plastics and food contamination. It is known for chemicals to go into food. Such as cling film wrapped around foods. 

Causing hormonal changes and other negative health effects. 

I think one thing could possibly explain it. 

New generation live inactive lifestyles. No excerise. Eat processed frozen foods. This can affect the sperm quality as maybe their tostestrone is low. So can affect gender of offspring. 

Older generation only ate fresh food and were more active. 

All in all not sure what exact cause is? But definantly a combination of factors  at play causing and imbalance in the gender of today's generation.

Not sure if diet is a big factor to be honest in determining gender. Although eating healthy and excersing and keeping away from alcohol/other intoxicants can only be good for the building blocks of life. 

What I read is that is largely due to genetics to a certain degree. Ie if you your father had alot of sons then you will also have alot of male offsping.But if he had alot of daughters then you will also have more chance of a having female childeren.  Its passed down.

my nani had 5 boys n all but one of em had a son first n then a girl. one had 3 sons altogether. my nana lived an active lifestyle n ate healthily.

but someone from work is one of 4 or 5 brothers no sisters n he ended up having 6 girls before finally havin a boy. hes obese n smokes. so u wud think his chances wudve decreased even more over time.

if we look at guru sahibaan, all but one had child n at least one son. from guru ram das ji onwards, all but one was born male.

agree that genetics r the major factor in the determining the sex in the same way it mostly determines our height, weight, facial features etc.

ultimately its wat the creator decides.

Karma is a balancing force apparently. If that is true then humanity (Punjabis in particular ) are due a glut of female babies due to the millions that have been 'selectively' aborted or killed over the years.

not just Punjabis tbh  other northern states like haryana, rajasthan and uttar pradesh also have a high rate of selective aborting. In fact i think haryanas is even higher than Punjab.    

tbh north indian culture is fkced up!   rough culture, everything is based around honor, caste system is also a lot worse in the north than in the south.   Rajasthan has the highest rate of violence against women than any other state in India. Drug and alcohol problems in the northern states as well. 

no wonder south india is progressing faster.   

the culture and mentality of the north western states seems to be similar to our neighbor. 

I think the reason the northern states are like that is because they were under foreign occupation for a 1000 years. being oppressed and suffocated for a 1000 years made the whole population depressed, anxious and live in fear,  there was no space or freedom to develop a sophisticated culture. to develop a culture you need freedom of expression and dignity which was denied by the foreigners that ruled the northern regions. The muslim invasion hardly had much influence in the south.   North indian mentality is deeply routed   its not just a coincidence.

It would be interesting to know about the use of alcohol during the invasions. its not surprising that the local men started drinking heavily during the 1000 years of invasion     alcohol probably was used as a get away while living in anxiety and constant fear for centuries.    

all of this is very deep routed stuff

If female foeticide is a real problem in Punjab would there not be a shortage of brides that the bride's family would call the shots.

Schools would be complaining of there being no girls in the schools.

I have heard this trope for the last 30 years. 

Not buying it.

      where did you read about Harrappa? from a book written by a "white man"  and who started the excavation of Harrappa?  "white man". he didn't try and destroy either. again you are including blacks?  why?  what about chinese, arabs, native americans etc?  why are you so fixated with blacks?  your whole view-point is a black one.   and where are the beautiful buildings in africa and jamaica?

      this is not true.  very famous/popular historians like Will and Ariel Durrant openly wrote about your first point.  most of you wouldn't even know about e.g. the concept of zero if it were not from their history/research. the ancient greeks were eager to learn and learnt form other cultures.  the modern european civilisation also did this.  it was no secret,  tolstoy acknowledged buddhism, schopenhauer acknowledged indian philosophy, goethe openly admired kalidasa.  they did not make any secret of this. yes europeans picked up greek, roman stuff in the renaissance and carried it through.  but they did not steal it.  francis bacon did not accept the learned greek methods, he thought out empiricism, which formed the basis of modern science.  the mathematics of euclid was rethought by russian mathematicians, which einstein used in the theory of relativity (not the euclidean gemoetry). learning from someone is not "stealing".  taking investigation further is not "stealing". what made the most wealthy parts of asia wealthy- china, india, japan- is that they were willing to learn from west.   e.g. japan didn't steal western civilisation after ww2.   again what is "what the white man has done".  and "our knowledge".  very petty way of thinking.  
    • I think this is due to the big improvement of regional cinema industries. I remember watching punjabi movies 10-15 years ago. They were very inferior to bollywood movies. In terms of story lines, special affects and general quality of production. This was understandable though as Punjabi cinema was just starting to come good and was not well fincanced .Many of the early punjabi films were just about some macho punjabi guy acting like a gangster with big mucha lol. I think those days are gone we are now seeing some good story lines and productions instead of those stereo typical films that were made in the 80's and 90's. Poeple can relate more to their own cultual language films more then the hindi type nonsence films. That glorify khans and muslims.Punjabi films can promote Sikhism and Punjabi language and do much good for punjab and punjabis by making good moral films to adsress alcohol and other issues affecting us. What we need is better actors, directors and producers to steer punjabi cinema to a bright future. Maybe it can become a global force? Tamil film industry is huge and they do good at promoting their language, culture and faith.
