These studies have some big problems.

这些研究都有一些大的问题存在。

 Sweat born from emotion does seem to have a different smell than sweat from exercise.

因为情绪而产生的汗液似乎不同于运动产生的汗液。

But that doesn’t tell us whether fear-related sweat works differently from, say, happiness-related sweat or the sweat that comes from sexual arousal.

但是并没有告诉我们是否与因为害怕产生的汗液会不同,与快乐产生的汗液或者性行为产生的汗液会不同。

“We’re using very crude techniques to study this,” says Denise Chen, a pioneer in this field at the Baylor College of Medicine.

我们使用原始的技术来研究这些问题,贝勒医学院从事这领域研究的先驱,丹尼斯陈说。

Among the limitations of the work is the fact that emotions can be hard to regulate in the lab.

在工作局限性的事实中,情绪在实验室是很难控制的。

“It’s very easy to scare people,” she says, “but it’s not so easy to make them happy.”

“很容易让人们害怕,”她说,“但是让人开心很不简单。”

Hygiene products pose another problem.

卫生产品也会产生其他问题。

The researchers must find subjects who are willing to forgo deodorant for several days before each study.

研究者必须找到实验前几天停止用除味剂的试验者。

 “That’s hard to do in this country because people are so hygiene-conscious,” Chen says.

“在这个国家很难找到这样的人,因为这个国家卫生意识很强,”陈说。

It also raises the question of whether any of this research would even matter in a real-world setting.

这个数据是否适用于真实世界也是个问题。

Given all the fragrances we dab onto our bodies, any signals that sweat might contain would be undetectable.

我们每天都往身上喷香水,汗液中的成分可能不会被察觉。

Or maybe not.

或者也许不会这样。

Wysocki says there’s evidence that certain people can detect body odor even when masked. He tested about 40 common compounds used to cover smells and arrived at a surprising result.

威索茨基说,有证据可以证明人们会在体味被掩盖的时候察觉到体味。他使用了40多种香味掩盖体味做实验,结果让他大吃一惊。

“It’s fairly easy to block the body odor of women in the noses of men,” he says.

“女性可以相当容易的在男性的鼻子下面掩盖自己的体味。”他说。

 “But when it came to women, only two of the [masking] compounds were effective.”

“但对于女人来说,只有两种香味能真的掩盖体味。”
