I bet that right now, in Washington, high-powered lobbyists from Big Deodorant are putting the squeeze on Congress to get this study suppressed.
--According to a new study out of the University of Bristol in England, about 2% of people don't need to wear deodorant. Because they have a gene that makes it so their underarms are ODORLESS.
--Only about 2% of people have the gene. The vast majority of them really don't need to wear deodorant. But 78% of them still wear it.
--About 95% of people who DO produce smells wear deodorant. Which means that 5% of them don't. And that, in a nutshell, explains why some days it's brutal to ride the bus.
--The researchers say you'd need a genetic test to determine if you're part of the odorless armpit group . . . but we're guessing you probably know already whether or not you're prone to B.O.
