Time to add more yogurt to your diet? According to a recent study done bt scientists at MIT, mice fed yogurt grew more luxuriant fur and larger testicles compared with their counterparts which were fed only normal mouse food. Hmm, maybe that explains why Mickey Mouse wears pants!
First, the scientists noticed that the yogurt-eating mice were incredibly shiny. Using both traditional histology techniques and cosmetic rating scales, the researchers showed that these animals had 10 times the active follicle density of other mice, resulting in luxuriantly silky fur.
Then the researchers spotted something particular about the males: they projected their testes outward, which endowed them with a certain "mouse swagger," Erdman says. On measuring the males, they found that the testicles of the yogurt consumers were about 5 percent heavier than those of mice fed typical diets alone and around 15 percent heavier than those of junk-eating males.
