10 Superpowers Of Women According To Science

They Can Spot Cheaters On Sight

image

Don Juans of the world, look out. Apparently women have the uncanny ability to tell if a man is a cheater just by looking at his face. When scientists at an Australian university asked 34 women to look at photographs of dozens of different men and identify which ones were unfaithful, the participants succeeded 62 percent of the time. The women seemed to base their decisions on how masculine—but not necessarily attractive—the man in the photo looked, and these manly men were indeed far more likely to cheat on their partners.By contrast, the women’s male counterparts in the study performed dismally, falsely concluding 77 percent of the time that the women shown to them were unfaithful. The scientists surmised that women may have developed this ability because they stood to lose a lot more in cases of infidelity. Whereas a man may only have to raise another man’s offspring, a woman may lose precious resources needed for her own offspring to those of another woman.

They Perceive More Colors

How many colors of the rainbow are there? There actually isn’t a clear-cut answer, and for women, the number is a lot higher. According to one respected scientist named Israel Abramov, women can see differences in colors far better than men. Having studied human vision for half a century, Abramov found that while men were better at seeing objects move across their line of sight, women were better at identifying subtle disparities among different hues. Abramov postulated that women developed this ability before the onset of the agricultural period, when they had to carefully choose edible vegetation while the men hunted for food.Additionally, there is a small group of women known as “tetrachromats,” who have the ability to perceive 100 million different colors because they possess four types of cones in the retina instead of three. These additional cones allow their brains to combine more colors. It took scientists decades to find such an individual, but researcher Gabriele Jordan managed to identify a physician from Northern England as the first known tetrachromat in 2007, and she is certain that there are many more out there.

Morning Sickness Saves Lives

As if we needed another reason to denounce thalidomide, scientists Paul Sherman and Samuel Flaxman asserted that morning sickness is actually a defense mechanism to protect an expecting mother and her unborn child from parasites and harmful toxins found primarily in meat, fish, and poultry products. They discovered that morning sickness occurs especially during the early stages of fetal development, when the baby is most vulnerable, and tapers off during the later part of pregnancy.Additionally, they found that women who endured the most intense morning sickness suffered fewer incidents of miscarriage than their counterparts who didn’t experience it. From an evolutionary standpoint, this adaptation enabled the growth of healthy offspring and ensured the survival of the human race. The next time a pregnant woman throws up, just comfort her with the knowledge that it’s for her own good.

Hidden Uses of Condiments

Condiment Packets Double as Ice-Packs 

image

Fast food restaurants typically put their condiments in small packages for easy use on the go. However, these small packages are also very useful when frozen. Simply stick a few packets in the freezer and pull them out to treat a small cut or other injury. The condiments work just like normal ice-packs, but they’re not as bulky!

Ketchup Polishes Copper

If you own copper-plated cookware, then you’ll want to make sure you stay stocked up on plenty of ketchup. Just spread an even coating of the popular condiment over the tarnished copper. The acidic nature of ketchup will dissolve away the brown build-up, so after a light scrub and rinse your pots and pans will shine like new.

Mustard Deodorizes Anything

Mix a solution of one part mustard to three parts water and spray or soak any smelly object in the yellow liquid. Mustard’s strong scent will overpower just about anything, which makes it great for removing strong smells like skunk or spoiled milk!

Mayonnaise Softens Tree Sap

Tree sap is one of the most annoying things you can get on your car, because it’s almost impossible to get off. Washing alone won’t do the job, and picking at it could damage the paint job. Luckily, a small dab of mayonnaise will soften the sap without much effort at all!

Ketchup Repairs Chlorine-Damaged Hair

image

If your hair is damaged and green-colored after swimming in a pool, then you should shampoo your hair with a generous helping of ketchup. This red condiment will moisturize the hair and restore the natural color after setting for about 10 minutes. Make sure to rinse out all the ketchup once you’re done.

Salt Removes Stains

image

Many stain removal products tout the power of oxygen, but you already have the power of salt! This simple ingredient removes even the most stubborn stains, such as sweat and grease. For a fresh stain, coat the area in dry salt and immediately wash; for an older stain, soak in a saltwater solution.

Mustard Acts as a Muscle Relaxant

image

Taking a warm bath helps with aches and pains, but throwing in a little mustard makes it even more effective. The combination of mustard and Epsom salt create a very soothing and therapeutic effect which reduces muscle pain. Mustard can also be combined with flour to create a paste for direct application to a painful area.
