We have previously discussed the fact that a person’s diet “designs” their body odour. Sweating is part of a complex biological process that that can be influenced by factors such as our surrounding environment and the type of food we eat.
We know there are antiperspirants like Perspirex Plus, which can fight against the discomfort caused by excessive sweating. And it is interesting that if we simply change a couple of habits or acquire a few new ones, we can successfully help eliminate body odour.
This is the case with red meat. Some experts say that most vegetarians do not have a pungent body odour and this is mainly due to the absence of meat in their diets. Though, we do not know if this statement is necessarily true, as we have seen that certain vegetables can also negatively influence body odour such as garlic, onion, chili, cabbage, and certain spices.
The Department of Anthropology, Faculty of Humanities of Charles University, located in Prague conducted an interesting study on red meat. In this study, researchers have attempted to relate factors such as attractiveness, persistence, durability and the effect of body odour that red meat eaters have on the opposite sex.
Here we tested the effect of red meat consumption on body odor attractiveness. We used a balanced within-subject experimental design. Seventeen male odour donors were on “meat” or “non-meat” diet for 2 weeks wearing axillary pads to collect body odour during the final 24h of the diet. Fresh odour samples were assessed for their pleasantness, attractiveness, masculinity, and intensity by 30 women not using hormonal contraceptives.
What we can infer from the results are that ladies found that the body odour of the meat eaters were less attractive, stronger, pervasive and undesirable compared to the men who did not consume red meat.
Does this mean that you should stop eating meat entirely and become a vegan? The short answer is no, what you consume is entirely up to you. If you find that giving up red meat is worth the benefit of smelling slightly more pleasant, that is your decision to make. Life is about balance and finding what works best for you in terms of happiness AND health.
If red meat is too delicious for you to abstain from, try Perspirex Plus for added protection against excessive sweat. Always to remember to Keep Calm…
