Amnosia and Insecurities

I found an article on the Huffington Post about how anosmia can lead to insecurities in men and women. People who suffer from anosmia miss smell cues. It is said that social signals are transmitted through the nose, and if you have anosmia, than your missing out on these cues. Anosmia sufferers are known to have less sexual relationships and feel more insecure which leads to them not having as many partners as a person who doesn't suffer from anosmia. These insecurities also come from anosmia sufferers not knowing if they smell bad. This article relate
s to the chapter explaining anosmia and how we give off odors. This article brings to light the things that people have to worry about when they lose their sense of smell that is beyond not knowing what different foods taste like, but trying to find and keep relationship.
