    Scientists has discovered how an important natural antibiotic called dermcidin, produced by our skin when we sweat, is a highly efficient tool to fight tuberculosis germs and other dangerous bugs. Their results could contribute to the development of new antibiotics that control multi-resistant bacteria. Scientists from the University of Edinburgh and from Goettingen, Tuebingen and Strasbourg have uncovered the atomic structure of the compound, enabling them to pinpoint for the first time what makes dermcidin such an efficient weapon in the battle against dangerous bugs. Although about 1700 types of these natural antibiotics are known to exist, scientists did not...

    No one is allowed near US President Barack Obama when he visits a downtown Los Angeles gym for a workout. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 'Go on – who is it?” I asked the workmen stapling thick black plastic over the windows of the hotel gym to which I belong. In a town where, on any given day, you can find yourself on the treadmill beside Woody Allen (in brogues), Kenneth Branagh doing lunges or Mike Tyson grunting his way through a set of bench presses, who is important enough to demand total privacy for their workout? A stroll down the street told me...

    The smell of a man's sweat differs according to what mood he is in and women can pick up on changes that indicate attraction, according to new research. The study, led by Dr Denise Chen, assistant professor of psychology at Rice University, in Texas, America, involved introducing two types of male sweat to 19 women in their 20s - one type was labelled 'normal', the other 'sexual'. The sweat was gathered from a selection of men who had polyester pads attached to their armpits. The 'normal' sweat was gathered during a 20-minute session in which the men were asked to...

    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...

    President Barack Obama's news conference Tuesday was moved inside because the Rose Garden is too humid. Now, he'll take questions in the James S. Brady Briefing Room. The White House announced the new location for the 12:30 p.m. ET news conference at 9:34 a.m. Aides in the Rose Garden discovered it was already sticky, which would have made for miserable journalists and unflattering video. So will the reporters stand when the president enters the room? By tradition, reporters stand in the more formal setting of the East Room. In the briefing room, sometimes they do and sometimes they don't ...

    LONDON: It is often suggested that there's natural smell in females that arouse males, but a team of testers have now found that women smell of onions while men smell of cheese. A Swiss team of researchers, who studied the armpit sweat samples from 24 males and 25 females, found marked differences in the sweat from men and women after they had spent time in a sauna or 15 minutes on an exercise bike. "Men smell of cheese, and women of grapefruit or onion," said Christian Starkenmann of Firmenich, a company in Geneva that researches flavours and perfumes for food...

    While I doubt anyone in the MSM will mention it, tonight we witnessed something akin to what took place during the Kennedy Nixon debate and it was there for all the world to see. Obama was nervous and sweating it out. If you look carefully a number of times for a long period of time, Obama had globs of white spittle clinging to the center of his bottom lip! We have a 100" screen and a 1080p Sony projector and it was clearly evident that Obama was nervous. The white spittle globs occurred at least three different times and were...

    Doctors in China admit they are baffled after a man began to perspire green sweat. Cheng Shunguo, 52, of Wuhan city, says his sweat turned green in the middle of November. "I noticed that my underwear and bed sheets were all green, and even the water in the shower," he told the Chutian Metropolis News. Cheng says he feels no discomfort, but went to hospital because he was worried about his condition. Doctors thoroughly cleaned his armpits but it took only 10 minutes for his sweat to turn a piece of white gauze green again. They have carried out blood...

    CHICAGO (Reuters) - When it comes to a man's body odor, the fragrance -- or stench -- is in the nose of the beholder, according to U.S. researchers who suggest a single gene may determine how people perceive body odor. The study, published online on Sunday in the journal Nature, helps explain why the same sweaty man can smell like vanilla to some, like urine to others and for about a third of adults, have no smell at all. "This is the first time that any human odorant receptor is associated with how we experience odors," Hiroaki Matsunami of Duke...

    Sport fears over sweat virus risk People involved in contact sports are urged to be cautious A potentially fatal liver virus could be spread in sweat during contact sports, say Turkish researchers. They are calling for more compulsory testing for Hepatitis B in sports such as wrestling. The study of 70 male Olympic wrestlers, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, found eight who had the virus in their sweat. However, British experts say that catching it through sweat, rather than via blood, remains extremely unlikely. Hepatitis B causes a serious, chronic infection in approximately 5% of adults who...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- For women, apparently there's nothing like the smell of a man's sweat. Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley said women who sniffed a chemical found in male sweat experienced elevated levels of an important hormone, along with higher sexual arousal, faster heart rate and other effects. They said the study, published this week in the Journal of Neuroscience, represents the first direct evidence that people secrete a scent that influences the hormones of the opposite sex. The study focused on androstadienone, considered a male chemical signal. Previous research had established that a whiff of it...

It's an open-air bazaar in the City of Angels, where the underground economy sizzles and salesmen known as micaderos spot you from half a block away. I slowed down at a corner and two men approached my car, asking what I needed. I am a California-born gringo of European descent, and so I had to come up with something to make them think I wasn't an undercover...

But who among them would actually bid to purchase a napkin Keyes used to blot sweat from his brow at his acceptance speech? Only eBay knows for sure. Immediately following the announcement by Keyes to replace Jack Ryan as the candidate to face Democrat Barack Obama in a long-shot bid for the Senate, a zealous Alan Keyes supporter daubed sweat from the candidate's brow and placed the perspiration-soaked napkin for sale on eBay. No lie. Here's the ad copy from eBay: "Napkin with sweat from...

    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...

Sunday night reports began circulating that Gore has confided to his top aides that he will take another shot at the presidency. Almost immediately, people in the Gore camp denied the reports. With scheduled stops in Iowa, New Hampshire and the focal point of the 2000 election, Florida, its hard not to see Gore is preparing another presidential bid.

    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...
