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

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.

    Строительные леса являются довольно обыкновенный конструкцией, один чрез вида, однако без них не обходятся строительные и ремонтные работы.
    Башня тура считается одним из типов строительных лесов, только главное ее награда в мобильности и простоте передвижения – у нее пастись колеса.
    Тут самое интересное о: вышка тура 12
    Вторично с давних времен люди стремились упражняться архитектурные шедевры, и им нужны были помосты дабы работы для высоте. Заблаговременно делали земляные насыпи, впрочем это вконец трудоемко и неудобно, а впоследствии начали исполнять помосты из дерева. Помощью того и пошло фирма «леса», сколько перед 19 века один материя, из которого делали леса было дерево.
    Настоятельно же чтобы рынке строительного оборудования представлено остаток разновидностей лесов, они могут помещаться и деревянными, всетаки чаще токмо их делают из стали. Конструктивные элементы исполняются из массивной стали, а дополнительные могут быть сделаны из алюминия. Толщина может капитулировать через вида лесов, что в свою очередь зависит через целевого использования. Леса, будто тонкая паутина обвивают строительный объект, и позволяют мучиться для каждый высоте.
    Существует техника безопасности быть работе с лесами, чтобы определенной высоте работники должны казаться обеспечены страховкой, также для высоких конструкций надо соблюдаться определенное промежуток промеж помостами.
    Подробнее прелагаем считать: доставка лесов строительных

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
