An interesting study…

Not many specifics, but an interesting conclusion from Chemical Senses, and Oxford Journal:

The Effect of Meat Consumption on Body Odor Attractiveness.

Now… we don’t eat red meat because of its high calorie density (among other things), but does it really make you smell bad?

Here’s a quote:

Results of repeated measures analysis of variance showed that the odor of donors when on the nonmeat diet was judged as significantly more attractive, more pleasant, and less intense. This suggests that red meat consumption has a negative impact on perceived body odor hedonicity.

Well, I’ll be switched. I guess today is a “hooray for beans, grains, fruits, and veges” type day. They not only make you slim, but they evidently may keep you smelling good. How ’bout that?

Here’s the link.
