Study Says Eating Lots of Garlic Makes Men More Desirable to Women

No need to spend so much on fancy colognes.

It turns out that garlic, known for its off-putting odor, can actually make men more attractive to women. And yes, there’s a study to prove it.

A 2015 study that is again making its rounds on the internet found that eating lots of garlic can increase men’s desirability among women. Researchers from the University of Stirling and Prague’s Charles University asked 42 men to eat raw garlic, eat garlic capsules, or eat no garlic at all, in rotation. They were then made to wear pads in their armpits for the next 12 hours to collect odor samples.

High garlic consumption can make men more attractive to women.

Eighty-two women were asked to sniff the odor samples and judge their pleasantness, attractiveness, masculinity, and intensity. Results showed that the men who had eaten garlic in bulb and capsule form were “significantly more attractive and less intense” than those who didn’t.

The research was conducted by a team from the University of Stirling and Prague’s Charles University.

The researchers wrote in the journal Appetite, as reported by Telegraph:

“Certainly, breath odour plays a crucial role in most social interactions, but human axillary (armpit) odour is also an important factor in intimate relationships.

“Our results indicate that garlic consumption may have positive effects on perceived body odour hedonicity (the pleasure derived from it), perhaps due to its health effects, for example antioxidant properties and antimicrobial activity.

“From an evolutionary perspective, formation of preferences for diet-associated body odours was possibly shaped by means of sexual selection.”

Forty-two men and 82 women participated in the study.

There are previous studies that prove many animal species use-diet associated cues when selecting their mates, and this could be the same for humans.

The study says that armpit odor is a crucial factor in intimate relationships, too.

Research also says that garlic consumption by women can affect the smell of their breast milk, which can cause infants to spend more time feeding.

Indeed, garlic is powerful in more ways than one.

History

Why Sin Eating Was Once The Worst Job In The World

Technically, it was a thankless job.

If you think you are unfortunate for having to hold on to a job that you think sucks, bear in mind that at one point in history, there were people who went the extent of risking their salvation just for money. For the so-called Sin Eaters then, it did not matter if they had to suffer eternal damnation in hell for as long they could eat and have some coins in their pockets.

While a Sin Eater is already a thing of the past, there is no questioning that it held the notion as being the worst job in England, Scotland, and Wales where it was practiced from the Middle Ages until the early 1900s. You see, a Sin Eater had to eat a piece of bread placed on the chest of a dying person, otherwise known as a sin-soaked bread, while the family of the would-be departing person watched, prayed, and drank a flagon of ale.

By eating the sin-soaked bread, it was believed then that a Sin Eater could absolve the dying person from his sins, and his chances of entering heaven would improve.

Touching Plane Crash Memorial Site Spotted via Google Maps

The incident claimed 170 lives and its memorial is beautifully haunting.

On September 19, 1989, international passenger plane UTA Flight 772 was en route from Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo to the Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris. Tragically, the aircraft never made it to its destination as a bomb in the cargo hold blew up, causing it to break up over the Sahara desert.

The explosion, which later became known as the deadliest plane-related incidents in Niger, claimed the lives of all the 156 passengers and 14 crew members. French investigators later confirmed that it was an attack by Libyan terrorists.

Fast forward to 2007, Les Familles de l’Attentat du DC-10 d’UTA, an associated of the victims’ families, created a beautiful memorial for their departed loved ones. Now the said memorial is visible via Google Maps and Google Earth.
