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.

    Can I simply say what a comfort to discover an individual who genuinely understands what they are talking about online. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people have to look at this and understand this side of the story. It's surprising you are not more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.

    Добрый день друзья!Предлагаем Вашему вниманию интересный сайт для заказа бурения скважин на воду. Заказывайте скважину для воды в ЕВРОБУРСЕРВИС – получите доступ к экологически чистой природной воде по самым выгодным в Минске ценам! Создать полноценную скважину в Минской области, бесперебойно поставляющую вам воду, — означает не только пробурить ее, но и обустроить. А зачастую – также и установить очистное оборудование, которое соответствовало бы вашим требованиям к чистоте воды. Мы выполняем полный цикл работ — от бурения грунта до подачи чистой питьевой воды на несколько домов. Важный промежуточный этап — это обустройство скважины, т.е. установка и отладка рабочего оборудования. После бурения обустройство включает работы: монтаж насоса в скважину, благоустройство скважины снаружи (установка кессона или скважинного адаптера); земельные работы и разводка трубопровода до пользователя (пользователей); установка необходимой автоматики дома или в кессоне. Более подробная информация размещена тут https://drive.google.com/file/d/12UGUi1eb4vB_-VAklwchUhrlKM8233go/view?usp=sharing
    Увидимся!

    Next time I read a blog, I hope that it won't disappoint me just as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, however I actually believed you would have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you can fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.
