Scientists have discovered that essential nutrients, such as vitamin D, can attract the opposite sex?at least if you're a lizard. It may work that way for humans as well.
Louisa Cheung writes in BBC news that when scientists fed vitamin D to male rock lizards, they attracted more females. This could be because females are naturally attracted to males who are in good health because they make better mates. It's the same reason that female birds are attracted to brightly-color plumage in males, since this is a sign of a healthy bird.
Researchers have yet to find a group of males with the same general attributes and feed one group vitamins to see if they get more dates?but after so much success with lizards, someone is probably planning such an experiment.
