Chemicals that bombard the foetus
The chemicals affecting a foetus are largely generated by the mother and are, in turn, influenced by her genetic make–up and by stress. However, this is not the whole story. It is becoming clear that mothers can disrupt or distort the process, often unwittingly, by their own consumption, for example of alcohol or cigarettes. Recent research by Professor Lee Ellis and his team at Minot State University, North Dakota, discovered that taking pills for slimming and thyroid problems during early pregnancy increases the possibility of bearing a lesbian daughter. Ellis studied thousands of pregnant women to assess the effect of prescription drugs on their babies, and found that thyroxin and amphetamine–based slimming pills influenced homosexuality among female children.
“The results show sexual orientation is affected by pre–natal rather than social factors.”
The studies also revealed that some drugs can have the opposite effect – mothers of heterosexual males were 70% more likely to have taken pills to combat nausea than those of homosexual men
