Hormones do not make women fall in love with "macho", scientists say
The level of estrogen and other sex hormones in women does not affect their preferences in any way and does not make them fall in love with muscular and harsh "macho", biologists from the University of Glasgow in Scotland found out. "In the past, many medics and residents feared that hobby for birth control pills containing hormones could negatively affect the family and personal lives of women.
We did not find any evidence that changes in hormone levels somehow affected who they think are attractive, "said Benedict Jones of the University of Glasgow in Scotland.
In recent years, scientists have begun to take an active interest in how the differences in the work of different systems of the body affect human behavior and its psychology.
For example, a few years ago, biologists found that men are less likely to suffer from stress because their brain cells produce a specific enzyme that suppresses this reaction, which is not characteristic of the nervous system of women.
Long enough, according to Jones, among many philistines and scientists, there is an idea that increasing the level of testosterone or estrogen in the blood of men and women pushes them toward the second "halves" with pronounced masculine or feminine traits.
Accordingly, low concentration of hormones has the opposite effect - such people prefer feminized guys and masculine girls.
Jones and his colleagues checked to see if this was really so, having assembled a group of six hundred girls and inviting them to appreciate the attractiveness of several dozen guys looking through their photos. All these images were obtained from the same photo, which scientists changed toward more "courageous" and "feminine" with the help of a computer.
