Abstract:

ABSTRACT: Impacts of sodium and potassium in diet to determine offspring gender in hamsters have been investigated. Sex determination has scientific basis for prevention of genetic diseases in addition to social backgrounds.20 healthy hamsters chosen from the first generation of the previous experimental hamsters, were divided in to two groups in the hamsters male to female 1:5. The first group was Na and K, the second group was control unit without Na and K. It was found that the delivered offsprings male to female ratio were 2.06:1and 1:1, for the first and second groups respectively. Also, it was found that hamsters fed with (Na, K) food yields, numbers of offspring (135), while hamsters fed with normal food yields, numbers of male offspring (140).
