Researchers have found
that the smell of male
sweat causes elevated
levels of the hormone cortisol
in women, Reuters reported.
Cortisol causes sexual arousal,
improved mood and a faster
heart rate. The findings may be
used to develop new treatments
for Addison's disease, which
results in low cortisol levels.
