Women's health and the human pheromone
Sorry ladies, you will be seduced, pheromones make it impossible for you to resist men, no matter how dreadful the man wearing the pheromones may be. Wait, don't panic. Sadly the pheromone marketing craze may be causing us to turn a blind eye to an interesting discovery. I think it's like hearing about vitamins for the first time from a hard core drug dealer. When you get over your encounter with Mr. Dealer, you are not going to think of vitamins in the same way as a person who had heard about vitamins from GNC or Vitamin World. I believe the same thing is happening with marketers and pheromones. With that in mind let's take a look at pheromones.
Most people still believe pheromones are no different from X-ray glasses sold in the back of comic books. Others have been using them for years. To be sure, they are used heavily by government agencies worldwide. Business uses them daily, you may even use them. Of course I'm talking about insect and animal pheromones.
It was well known by the late 70s that females of the insect and animal kingdom produced chemicals for attracting males of the same species. By the late 70s pheromones were already being manufactured for pest control. Pheromones were being used to attract or repel bugs and animals. Pheromones were already protecting crops from damage. Roaches were checking in and not checking out. At the same time scientist were working hard to find and prove the existence of human pheromones. This evidence was found in the mid 70s but did not reach the public with any power until the mid 80s.
Human pheromones made front page news in 1986 when Researchers at the Monell Chemical Senses Center of Philadelphia released their findings to the scientific journal Hormones and Behavior, as well as to the public by way of:
Time Magazine: “Studies find that male pheromones are good for women's health.”
News week: “The Chemistry Between People: Are Our Bodies Affected by Another Person's Scent?”
USA Today: “The Real Chemical Reaction between the Sexes.”
The Washington post: “Pheromones Discovered in Humans.”
The human pheromone was big news in the 80s. It was found that women's health was directly affected by male pheromone. Pheromones help to maintain the health of women. To be more exact, they keep a woman's reproductive system healthy. A healthy testosterone rich male pheromone signature somehow encouraged a woman's body to keep itself healthy and young. It can stabilize the menstrual cycle, and reduce the symptoms of PMS. Pheromones could lift a woman's mood actually alleviating depression, even postpone and then alleviate menopause.
How did we get from health benefits to wild seduction products? People can't resist a fast buck. If it's about money, maybe we should be using pheromone products to make women's lives better. Strike that. We should be using pheromone products to make people's lives better. Provide pheromones that do the things mentioned above. Help to enable pheromone research that will gain more knowledge related to health and longevity. I don't have anything against attracting the opposite sex. I think that's a good idea. It's just sad to see a good thing, or potentially good thing, be lost because of poor focus.
There is always more to the story than meets the eye. The person who does not ask questions has either been beaten down low by the people who know-it-all, or, they are the people who know-it-all. Keep asking questions. You will keep finding better answers.
