He told The Sunday Times: “Pre-birth exposure to both nicotine and amphetamines increases the chance of lesbian daughters.”

Dr Swaab also claimed that the more brothers a boy has, the more likely he is to become gay.

He added: “Pregnant women suffering from stress are also more likely to have homosexual children of both genders because their raised level of the stress hormone cortisol affects the production of foetal sex hormones.”

The doctor also claimed that annoying behaviour in teens is natures way of preventing incest.

Ben Summerskill, chief executive of gay rights organisation Stonewall, said that “sexuality is probably is caused by genetic inclination”, adding that more evidence is needed before stating either way.

Despite his controversial claims, the doctor said genetics do play a much larger role in child development than lifestyle choices.
