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.

    Доброго времени суток!
    Жизненно серьезный и важный вопрос!?
    Уважаемые и дорогие мужчины, помогите!
    Кто разбирается и понимает в строительстве фундамента для дома, дачи, бани, гаража есть такие?
    Было бы отлично и здорово, если бы вы занимались и имели бы опыт в строительстве фундаментов, есть такие?
    В интернете много говорят и пишут о строительстве фундамента за полцены или за 50%.
    Мне интересно это уловка или правда?
    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 полцены или за 1/2, не нарушая технологического процесса и соблюдая все строительные нормы?
    Взгляд на вещи у меня конечно женский, а не мужской, мне что-то мало в это верится, в общем, я колеблюсь и сомневаюсь.
    Сайт у них конечно пояснительный и хороший, с множеством разъясняющих и подробных статей с схематическими рисунками и таблицами, например:
    Разметка мелкозаглубленного фундамента на пучинистых грунтах
    После прочтения нескольких статей и ознакомления с сайтом начинаешь верить в правдоподобность и реальность этого утверждения.
    Действительно начинаешь верить в строительство дешевых и качественных фундаментов под дачу, дом, баню, гараж и т.д. за полцены или 1/2.
    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:
    Качество строительства
    Профессионалы, специалисты и практики в строительстве фундаментов, можно ли строить качественные и дешевые фундаменты за полцены или за 50% от цены фундамента, или нельзя?
    Вот адрес Школы частных прорабов Prorab2.ru, осуществляющей и обучающей строительство фундаментов за 50% или за полцены от цены фундамента https://prorab2.ru/ .

    As a rule, having asked a question of installation of a stairs in the house, owners don't assume that the ladder and its protection are two absolutely different products. Well, if the same company, like us, is engaged in the arrangement of turnkey facilities and can offer to make a ladder and metal fences on it in one set, but in practice it is rare. Therefore, before any owner of the stairs in the house the question arises: how to make it safe, we guarantee the best conditions for cooperation thanks to our own production, high potential design office and focus on long-term mutually beneficial partnership. Here you can buy not only standard fencing for stairs, but also design, made to order and is amazingly cheap. New construction technologies, developing rapidly, allow to use light, modern, reliable and weightless structures. Stair railings made of stainless steel are such that the price thereof is acceptable. Railings made of reliable material: an important structural element, part of the design of the building, the guarantors of safety and easy descent and ascent the stairs. Protections for ladders which are offered by our company differ in reliability, resistance to various aggressive influences and faultless appearance. In addition, their manufacture takes into account all kinds of standards and requirements relevant to this group of products. It is difficult to imagine a building in which there will be no stair railings, the presence of which increases the convenience, safety when moving. Note that today for the manufacture of construction offers a large selection of elements with which it is possible to quickly perform the installation of the structure, which for many years will last without losing the original qualities. Manufacturing and installation of stainless steel stairs is inexpensive compared to designs from other materials with equal quality characteristics. However, stainless steel is much more popular material-it is easy to handle, combine with other materials, install and care for the finished product
