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.

    A big brush can also help you get the best look and feel for your particular waves while they're in motion, so if you need a bigger wave you should buy a bigger brush. if you just want a better feel for your waves, you should consider getting a smaller brush.

    Всем привет!
    Жизненно серьезный и важный вопрос!?
    Дорогие и уважаемые мужчины, помогите!
    Кто понимает и разбирается в строительстве фундамента для бани, дома, дачи, гаража есть такие?
    Было бы отлично и здорово, если бы вы имели опыт и занимались строительством фундаментов, есть такие?Было бы здорово и отлично, если бы вы имели опыт и занимались строительством фундаментов, есть такие?
    В интернете много пишут и говорят о строительстве фундамента за полцены или за 50%.
    Мне интересно это правда или уловка?
    Нашла в интернете сайт Школы частных прорабов Prorab2.ru, они утверждают, что можно строить качественные и дешевые фундаменты для бани, дома, дачи, гаража и т.д.
    Это правда или нет, действительно можно строить фундаменты за 1/2 или за полцены, соблюдая все строительные нормы и не нарушая технологического процесса?
    Взгляд на вещи у меня конечно женский, а не мужской, мне что-то мало в это верится, в общем, я сомневаюсь и колеблюсь.
    Сайт у них конечно пояснительный и хороший, с множеством подробных и разъясняющих статей с схематическими рисунками и таблицами, например:
    Какой песок нужен для подушки фундамента
    После ознакомления с сайтом и прочтения нескольких статей начинаешь верить в правдоподобность и реальность этого утверждения.
    Действительно начинаешь верить в строительство дешевых и качественных фундаментов под гараж, дом, дачу, баню и т.д. за 1/2 или полцены.
    Еще есть важный и хороший момент, на сайте есть раздел посвященный психологии в строительстве и ремонте, в нем рассказывается обо всех ремонтных и строительных процессах, как бы изнутри.
    Есть моменты и тонкости, о которых вообще ни кто не рассказывает и не пишет, например:
    Специалист ремонту и обслуживанию
    Профессионалы, специалисты и практики в строительстве фундаментов, можно ли строить дешевые и качественные фундаменты за 50% или за полцены от цены фундамента, или нельзя?
    Вот адрес Школы частных прорабов Prorab2.ru, обучающей и осуществляющей строительство фундаментов за 50% или за полцены от цены фундамента https://prorab2.ru/ .
    До скорой встречи!
