Science Says That Women Are Drawn To Men Who Eat This Food

A new study says that men who eat garlic are more attractive to the opposite sex.

Scientists discovered that women found that the sweat (grim, we know) from men who had eaten garlic smelt better than those who hadn't.


To conduct the research, scientists from the University of Stirling in Scotland and Charles University in the Czech Republic asked 42 men to participate in the study.

Not only is garlic good for you, it seems to have another hidden power

They were then divided into three groups: the first group consumed raw garlic, the second took garlic capsules while the third abstained from garlic completely.

The next step was that the men were instructed to wear sweat bands in their armpits for 12 hours so that the odour could be collected.

82 women were then asked to smell the sweat samples and rate each one in order of pleasantness, attractiveness, masculinity and intensity.

The results showed that women found the men who had eaten garlic more attractive and the researchers have come up with a couple for reasons for the findings.

We're not quite sure it would have this effect but it's worth a shot...

One is that the 'healthy' sweat produced by men eating garlic smells better because garlic is a nutritious food and the other possibility is that garlic's antibacterial properties make armpits smell somewhat sweeter.

The method might have been a bit mad but the results are interesting nonetheless.
