    This article talks about what happens when you sweat. You are about to do something really big -- maybe a job interview, a presentation, a first date or your wedding -- and you notice that your palms and underarms are sweating. Perhaps, you've just completed an aerobic workout and your whole body is drenched in sweat. How can such different activities have the same effect on your body? What is sweat and why do we make it? Perspiration, or sweat, is your body's way of cooling itself, whether that extra heat comes from hardworking muscles or from overstimulated nerves. In...

    A chemical in male sweat can boost mood, brain activity and sexual arousal in heterosexual women, according to a new study released just in time for Valentine's Day. The study offers the first direct evidence that humans secrete a scent that can affect the physiology of the opposite sex, said researchers at the University of California, Berkeley. Their findings were published this week in The Journal of Neuroscience. "This is the first time anyone has demonstrated that a change in women's hormonal levels is induced by sniffing an identified compound of male sweat," said study leader Claire Wyart, a postdoctoral...

    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use. In a bid to garner women's votes, the main opposition party issues 20,000 manuals that offer candidates advice on visual appeal. Japan's main opposition party is hoping to garner votes in the upcoming general election by giving candidates a quick course on how to impress women. Recent newspaper polls show support among women for the Democratic Party of Japan at around half the level seen among men. In an effort win back a share of the female vote in the Nov. 9 poll, the party has distributed 20,000 copies of a...

    Male Underarm Odors Soothe Women Lavender and vanilla aromatherapy may be all the rage. But new research suggests that male armpit sweat may be just as soothing for women. The effect, say scientists, may have helped get early women into the mood for love. Chemist George Preti of the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, Penn., and colleagues exposed female volunteers for six hours to a fragrance containing men's concentrated armpit sweat. The researchers then tracked levels of luteinizing hormone in the women's bloodstreams. Luteinizing hormone helps regulate the timing of the menstrual cycle. The scientists report in the journal...

    Fri March 14, 2003 01:14 PM ET PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Sweating it out over a big date this weekend? If you're a guy, that could be just the ticket, according to a human biology study released on Friday. Biologists at the University of Pennsylvania said they found male perspiration had a surprisingly beneficial effect on women's moods. It helps reduce stress, induces relaxation and even affects the menstrual cycle. "This suggests there may be much more going on in social settings like singles' bars than meets the eye," said Charles Wysocki, an adjunct professor of animal biology at Penn's School...

    Al Gore. State election officials ultimately declared George W. Bush the winner by a margin of 537 votes, but during and after the election dispute, questions remained about the uncounted ballots of 175,010 voters, ballots that had been rejected by error-prone tabulating machines employed in many Florida counties. Confusion and conflict, much of it generated by partisan intrigue, prevented these ballots from being counted during the election controversy. However, in 2001 every uncounted ballot was carefully examined in a scientific study by the University of Chicago, which concluded that when all the votes were counted, more votes had been cast...
