[Fark] The year in weird science.

* Get out those razors, guys. Men who don't need to shave every day are 70 per cent more likely to suffer a stroke than those who do, research from Bristol University in the UK revealed.

* German researchers were charged with sniffing the sweaty armpits of a group of volunteers to test the effectiveness of the anti-wrinkle treatment Botox as an anti-perspirant. Separate research released in the US said male sweat could reduce stress and induce relaxation in women – and even affect the menstrual cycle.

* An 85-year-old widow was so determined not to be resuscitated that she had the words "do not resuscitate" tattooed across her chest

* Spanish researchers diagnosed an extremely rare disease that makes people smell of fish. Trimethylaminuria, or fish odour syndrome, is caused by a liver abnormality.
