  1. Human pheromones and food odors: epigenetic influences on the socioaffective nature of evolved behaviors http://www.socioaffectiveneuroscipsychol.net/index.php/snp/article/view/17338
    Snake oil peddlers? No conclusive evidence? On Wednesday 2/8/17, George Church refuted theistic evolution by linking metabolic networks to genetic networks. The obvious link has always been endogenous RNA interference, because it links the nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction from microbes to humans. Now that Church and others like him are starting to tell the truth, how can the selling of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense be compared to the facts presented 2005 in Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16290036

  2. I think humans evolved passed pheromones to just detecting everyday chemicals produced by our bodies mixed with specific social cues. For example: Men's sweat is unpleasant to women when just passing by in the streets but after some hard labour or a good workout I theorize that the smell of sweat in these context might be a 'turn on' as it might be an indication that the male has genes that can increase the chance of a strong offspring. p.s. this might also fluctuate with social norms like the sweat is sexy craze of the 1980s. In a lot of places in the 80s gyms were the best place to get a date. Also, a fact that might appease feminists, during this time females working out was normalized as well as their sweat. As Nixon might have said… i'm meeting you half way you dogmatic feminists.
