Here’s an article that was published on September 14, 2010 that I discovered on the Scientific American website titled:
Man-Made: A Baby Boy’s Development May Predict a Young Man’s Success… “Early childhood nutrition may play a role in determining the stature and masculinity of young men, suggests a study that began in 1983.”http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=baby-boy-early-development-may-predict-young-man-success
This article delves into the importance of nutrition during the first 6-months of a babies life, but more specifically that of a baby boy. It was a longitudinal study of 770 Filipino men which tracked their height, weight, muscle mass, strength, testosterone levels and sexual history from birth until their early 20s.
The study revealed that the first developmental stage is critical for young males, which may be a successful predictor of how tall, strong and how quickly he will mature. Researchers attribute the importance of this period to high levels of testosterone.
…So I guess we are what we eat. If you have a son and want him to be huge, strong, and incredibly masculine, than the key is feeding him hearty meals during the first 6 months after birth! (And if he’s going to play linebacker for a DI football team, do make sure he wears a helmet and avoids concussions… keep his brain safe!)
