The Science of Attraction
"What makes some people so much more alluring than others? The Independent discovers that good looks and sexiness are determined before we're even born."

'These findings have several important implications,' says psychologist Dr Steven Gangestad who led the study. 'They fit in with the idea that women evolved to find particular features attractive because those features are related to low levels of oxidative stress.'"
