Attractiveness through fruit and vegetables? According to a study by the British University of Bristol, vegetables and fruits are supposed to change the appearance in such a way that we are more attractive to other people.
(May 26, 2010) According to a study by the British University of Bristol, vegetables and fruit should change their appearance in such a way that we are more attractive to other people. The researchers, led by study leader Professor Ian Stephan from the University of Bristol and the psychologist Professor David Perrett from St. Andrews University, published their results, which seem to confirm old assumptions from naturopathy, in the online edition of the English newspaper "Daily Mail" .

In the study, they gave the participants five different types of vegetables and fruits every day for a period of one month. Among other things, those that contain a lot of the pigment substances carotene and melanin, such as apricots, carrots, peaches and tomatoes. After the month, other people who had not partook of the diet were shown photos of the study participants showing them before and after the diet. It turned out that after the carotene and melanin-rich diet, the photos were much more attractive to the viewer.

Obviously, people seem to prefer the complexion from a healthy natural diet over that from the sun, the British researchers conclude. They now want to see whether this knowledge can be incorporated into national health campaigns. Because the realization that a healthy diet increases attractiveness could lead more people to eat more fruit and vegetables, they hope. (Thorsten Fischer, naturopath osteopathy)
