What the Yuck: Man, he smells good...

Too embarrassed to ask your doctor about sex, body quirks, or the latest celeb health fad? In a regular feature and a new book, "What the Yuck?!," Health magazine medical editor Dr. Roshini Raj tackles your most personal and provocative questions. Send 'em to Dr. Raj at whattheyuck@health.com.

Q: Is it true if a guy smells good to you that means you're biologically compatible?

Like most things involving men and women, it's complicated!

There have been several studies that showed that people are attracted to the smell of members of the opposite sex who are somewhat genetically dissimilar in terms of their immune-system genes, and are turned off by the odor of those with very similar immune-system genes.

Being genetically unlike in this way has a biological advantage for the kids because theoretically they'll have both sets of genes and therefore a more diverse immune system.

But this theory has yet to be proven, and there are so many other factors that go into compatibility, I wouldn't put too much stock in this as a way to find your perfect match.

    Online Dating the place to start

    online dating service is fast becoming the worlds favorite way of meeting people. There are many testimonials on most of the online dating sites about their success. Meeting people online is less prolonged, Faster and you should check out hundreds of new potential friends. I read many a story of how "I didnt chose the love of my life, But I made loads of new friends, All you want is to meet some new people and maybe you can see your soul mate. Where do proceeding, What happens? over doing a search, And scrolling through the thousands of pages of online dating service and related sites, could possibly look for the dating directory or review sites. One I have found to be even more so useful is Dating Connection. They list most of the popular online dating sites as well as some specialist ones, this includes dating for bikers, Dating your deaf etc. you would run into the dating sites listed under their specific categorey eg. Pink Cupid is for lesbian dating and big church is for christians. Most sites have a country selection and you can usually find plenty of members from your county.

    in to Lea, I live australia wide I review the review sites. I like to be sure that these sites know what they are talking about. Particularly online dating services as not only can you get burned by the http://www.loveme.com internet, But also by those who you meet.

    Привет друзья
    Канализация Компания Буртехсервис выполняет полный комплекс работ по водоотведению в частных домах Минска и Минской области. В качестве септика используем бетонные кольца – это самый надежный и долговечный вариант монтажа канализации среди существующих сегодня.
    Монтаж канализации в частном доме. Установка септика
    Установка септика из бетонных колец проводится по следующим этапам:
    Подготовка. Расчет количества бетонных колец в зависимости от количества проживающих в доме. Выбор места – септик должен располагаться на расстоянии более 5 метров от дома и не меньше 50 метров от водозаборной скважины.С помощью экскаватора выкапывается 2 котлована для будущих колодцев-резервуаров и траншея для прокладки труб до дома.С помощью спецтехники опускают бетонные кольца одно за другим на дно каждого котлована. Для формирования одного резервуара требуется три кольца. Стандартная высота бетонного кольца составляет 90 см. Первый резервуар будет выполнять роль очистного сооружения, второй – фильтрационный.В траншею закладывается канализационная труба. Трубопровод прокладывают под определенным углом наклона. Это позволяет избежать засоров в трубопроводе, образующихся в местах поворотов и изгибов во время передвижения к септику нечистот и отработанной воды.В резервуарах пробивают отверстия под канализационную трубу и перелив. Монтаж очистной системы.На третье бетонноеСтыки бетонных колец герметизируют цементным раствором.В качестве люков на резервуары устанавливают полимерные крышки.Засыпают землей оставшееся пространство, выравнивают.Обустройство системы водоотведения завершено.
    Стоимость обустройства и монтажа канализации
    Стоимость монтажа канализации зависит от глубины вырываемого котлована, количества бетонных колец и начинается от 1000 рублей.
    Установка септика из бетонных колец обеспечит Вам надежность и подарит комфортную жизнь в Вашем доме!
    Компания Буртехсервис не только выполняет комплекс работ по водоотведению (монтажу канализации), но и осуществляет сервисное обслуживание установленных септиков.
