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.

  17. купить коляску

    Выбрать хорошую коляску быстро и без особого изучения всех характеристик невозможно. Поскольку к моделям для новорождённых предъявляют довольно строгие требования: учёт физиологических особенностей малыша, качественность и безопасность – https://купить-коляску.рус

    Чтобы детская коляска пришлась по душе маме и ребенку, нужно внимательно рассмотреть все ключевые типы транспортных средства, их достоинства и недостатки, а также учесть советы экспертов, которые подскажут, на что стоит обратить внимание перед покупкой.
    Для ребенка прогулки на улице очень важны. Осозновая это, многие мамы находятся с своим чадом на свежем воздухе практически весь день (если позволяет погода). Именно поэтому от качества коляски зависит многое – в том числе и полноценное развитие малыша.
    Конечно, желательно подобрать комфортную коляску, особенно если семья проживает в квартире и женщине приходится самой ежедневно поднимать и спускать ребенка и его транспортное средство.

    Вот некоторые особенности:
    – высокими бортами; утеплённой накидкой на ноги;
    – системой циркуляции воздуха, позволяющей поддерживать внутри спального места оптимальный температурный режим даже в жару.

    Доброго времени суток дамы и господа!
    С каждым годом состав удобрений и химикатов органического и неорганического происхождения становится все эффективнее. Они создаются с учетом особенностей грунта, растений и предохраняют их от заражения специфическими заболеваниями. Некоторые из химических удобрений универсальны в использовании и походят для небольших участков, другие же применяются только в определенных условиях. Так, неорганика прекрасно защищает, увеличивает и улучшает свойства урожая, однако не всегда подходит для зерновых или плодово-овощных культур. Мы предлагаем своим потребителям как испытанные десятилетиями классические удобрения, так и новые разработки, улучшающие состав почв, ускоряющие рост и даже идущие во благо животным.
    Мы будем рады Вас видеть у нас на сайте
    От всей души Вам всех благ!

    Good day and welcome to my website . I’m Michalina.
    I have always dreamed of being a book writer but never dreamed I’d make a career of it. In college, though, I assisted a fellow student who needed help. She could not stop telling me how well I had done. Word got around and someone asked me for to write their paper just a week later. This time they would pay me for my work.
    During the summer, I started doing research paper writing for students at the local college. It helped me have fun that summer and even funded some of my college tuition. Today, I still offer my writing services to students.
