Sweatin’ Bullets…

– – Someone once said that animals sweat, men perspire, and women have a rosy glow.–Well, a study performed at Osaka International University in Japan and reported in the journal Experimental Physiology indicated that men sweat more and more efficiently than women, with men who are physically fit sweating more than anyone else!

Physically fit people begin to sweat at a lower core body temperature, which is adaptive since sweating is the body’s way of cooling off and preventing overheating.    A sweating person can then perform longer and better at whatever it is that they are doing.  Fit men tended to sweat the most, whereas  fit women had higher sweat rates than inactive men or inactive women.

Sweating may be the manly thing to do, too, as prior research has shown a link between the male-sex hormone testosterone, physical training, and an increase in sweat rate…so sweat proudly, knowing that you are a manly man, and that the proof is in the nostrils!

    Dear Vulpie:

    In a way, though, that’s troubling to know. Because, if fit men sweat like pigs, does that mean fit women sweat like sows?

      Dear Confused:

      It is not recommended that a woman ever be told that they sweat like a sow, or you’re likely to be rendered dazed as well as confused by the party so remarked to…women are funny that way.

      Sincerely, Vulpie
