Hanging out with good-looking women may seem like a dream come true, but if you are not careful, it could also kill you.
This reveal has been discovered by a group of scientists testing men and hormones.
Our bodies have cortisol, which is known as the “stress hormone.” This new research has revealed that men that spent five minutes alone with attractive women saw their cortisol levels increase like the world was about to end.
The research was conducted in the Universidad de Valencia, and they used 84 men for the study. Every single one of them produced the same result.
Each of these men was put in a room to solve a Sudoku. In the same room were a man and a woman, whom the subject didn’t know. The woman had to be good-looking, of course.
In just five minutes, the levels of cortisol in the subject reached the highest levels, and they didn’t get back to normal until the moment the woman left the room.
The cause for such stress would be that the man, when put in front of an attractive woman, feels the obligation to “woo” her, which would cause the stress and nervousness that cortisol produces.
Needless to say, cortisol is good in small doses, but when the body is subjected to high amounts of it for a prolonged time, illnesses appear, such as hypertension, diabetes, Cushing’s syndrome, some types of tumours and pigmentation.
So now you know: if you want to live, run away from the beauties!
