Not every health headline is an announcement of a life-altering new medical procedure, a science-heavy disease explanation or a love letter to kale.
Sometimes, health headlines are worth jumping for joy -- Chocolate Linked To Lower BMI! -- or are laughably obvious -- Healthy Lifestyle Makes Women Less Likely To Die Suddenly. Every once in a while, a headline comes along that makes us go, "Wait... what?!" Every week, we'll be collecting our favorite tweets about the "Huh?" headline of the week.
This week, the winner comes from a study published in the journal PLoS ONE, titled "The Impact of Psychological Stress on Men's Judgements of Female Body Size."
The journal tweeted the headline, sticking closely to the study's findings:
Stressed men rate heavier women as more attractive than non-stressed men do ow.ly/cPWVj— PLOS ONE (@PLOSONE) August 8, 2012
But other tweets had more fun. Check out the many different opinions on the study in the slideshow below.
