The odor of those on the non-meat diet was consistently rated as more attractive. According to the scientists, eating red meat has a negative effect on "perceived body odor hedonicity," which we assume is science-talk for "smelling like a goddamn werewolf."So far, there's no medical explanation for why this occurs, although the theory is that undigested toxins in the meat get secreted through the pores of the skin. That either generates the meaty stink directly, or the odor is caused by bacteria that subsequently gather on the skin to feed on the secreted toxins.
