Ever felt like you are a human magnet to mosquitos? Estimates indicate 20% of people are especially tasty to these critters! Your body produces volatile chemicals these insects can detect. Research on twins suggests identical twins share genes that help produce those mosquito-attractive odors, while fraternal twins do not share so many of these genes. Diet and personal hygiene where controlled during this study.
