Lamb Chops and Steaks Calm Down Stressed Men

Women who want to calm down their husbands after a stressful day
should serve him a big steak, scientists said this week. Contrary to
popular opinion that a hunk of red meat may make men aggressive, experts
said it actually has a calming effect.

The researchers from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, said
seeing meat provokes a sense of non-aggression that could be related to
family feasting among the earliest humans and reminds males of friends
and family at meal time.

Lead researcher Frank Kachanoff, Ph.D., admitted he was
surprised by the findings. He said the idea that meat would prompt
aggressive behavior makes sense as it would have helped our primate
ancestors with hunting.

However, experiments found that the opposite was true and that
the sight of meat had a calming effect on males and made them less

Evolutionary experts believe it is useful to look at innate
reflexes in order to understand trends in society and personal behavior.
They said this latest research was important because it looked at ways
society may influence environmental factors to decrease the likelihood
of aggressive behavior.
