Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, has commented on a recent study that shows the connection between women with heart disease and the likelihood of having a baby girl.
Researchers at the World Congress of Cardiology reviewed the gender of 216 babies who were born to women who had been diagnosed with a cardiovascular disorder such as heart disease. They found that 75% of the babies born to these women were female. Amongst these women, 64% were suffering with valvular disease, 19% with dilated cardiomyopathy and 14% with uncorrected or significant residual congenital heart disease.
Dr. A. Alizadehasl, from Tabriz University, Tabriz, Iran, reports “We believe that this is the first study looking at the relationship between gender and the mother’s cardiac disease”
“This is a very interesting observation. The chromosomes in a man’s sperm are responsible for the male/female of a baby but this study does suggest that there may be a relationship between the health status of the mother and the male/female of the babies that she is able to carry to full-term,” adds Dr. Kathryn Taubert, Chief Science Officer, World Heart Federation.
Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health, Dr. Victor Marchione says, “although many women may desire a baby girl, it is probably safe to say that none of them would sacrifice their good health in order to increase their odds of having one. Proper cardiac care and good health are vitally important for a healthy pregnancy and the delivery of a healthy baby”.
In addition to exercising and eating a whole food based diet, you can reduce your risk for cardiac disease by quitting smoking, reducing alcohol intake and maintaining a healthy weight. Finally, you can magnify the effects of this cardiac care lifestyle by emphasizing the following heart-supporting super foods — berries, cold-water fish, oatmeal, spinach and olive oil.
