Japanese scientists were able to establish that there is a drug that can keep a man from falling under the spell of a beautiful woman. They decided to check what is the impact on the psyche receiving the antibiotic minocycline.
In their study involved 98 males, which experts showed 8 photos of beautiful women. Men were asked to rate a photo, can you trust each of the women, and asked them to rate the attractiveness.
Before the start of the experiment, the participants were divided into two groups, one of which is received within four days of placebo, and the second minocycline. After that, the men gave a symbolic sum of 1300 yen and asked to decide what exactly the lady would have traded with easy money. They were warned that once the money gets into the hands of women will begin their turn to decide whether to give the man three times higher amount, or simply disappear with the money. Women already were assured that any money back they will not receive.
The results of the study showed that men tend to trust beautiful women, but at the same time, the group of men that took minocycline showed avid perseverance, and unwilling to part with money, and even if they parted, gave them a lesser amount than did the gentlemen in the placebo group.
It should be noted that minocycline belongs to the tetracycline antibiotics commonly used to treat acne. Recent studies have demonstrated its ability to reduce the symptoms of such mental disorders as depression and schizophrenia.
