DO PHEROMONES WORK?
The cover story of the January 28th, 2008 Time Magazine Issue is titled “The Science of Romance” and explains in great detail the importance of human scent in influencing the sexual or social behavior of others around you.
There is a growing body of knowledge supported by recent research findings indicating that pheromones do work! Not only scientists but practically everyone else wants to know what makes us get so crazy over love and what attracts one person to another. Some scientists hypothesize that smell may play an even greater role in determining who we are attracted to than physical appearance.
“Scientists have long known that odors and subliminal scents – or pheromones – influence how animals develop, mate, bond, and nurture their offspring. It has come to be known that humans are no exception. Odors can accelerate puberty, control women’s menstrual cycles, and even influence sexual orientation. They help us tell lovers and family members from strangers and let mothers and infants bond. Odors affect how often we have sex, and with whom. They influence how the brain develops, what we remember, and how we learn.” (James Kohl – Researcher)
