    Interesting article about sweat in yesterday's Wall Street Journal

    Post by Ted Falconi on Wed Feb 06, 2013 10:12 pm

    Forgot my book and read this article in the lunch room today:
    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323926104578278290520663794.html

    Researchers collected sweat from 64 men during their first time skydiving and again while exercising. They then looked at the response of 14 other people while inhaling the different sweats.
    ...
    Johan Lundström, an associate member of the Monell Center, has conducted studies showing that when a person smells the body odor of a stranger the body's neural fear network gets activated, even when the person isn't aware of what they are smelling.
    ...
    In a 2003 study he was involved with, 18 women exposed to the underarm odor of several men showed evidence of altered mood, including increased relaxation.

    The very existence of those studies is more interesting to me than the results.

    Is it weird that I'd like to see women smell my sweat and study their reactions?
