The attractive looks, especially a beautiful face has become an advantage not a small consideration in many aspects of today’s society. Hence also the theme of beauty has always been interested and recently a new study from the University of Wisconsin – Madison (USA) made a number of findings in terms of angles beauty genetics.
The relationship between genes and beauty
In a new study published 4/2019 earlier this month in PLoS Genetics, the study’s authors, he Qiongshi Lu – Assistant Professor of Department of Statistics in the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and colleagues have used the scale to determine the types of genes associated with the attractive face.
To rate the attractiveness, the researchers asked volunteers pixel dot yearbook 4,383 people according to the level of “not attractive” to “extremely attractive”. After that, the experts compared the attractiveness ratings points with the genetic structure of each person to find the relationship.
The results obtained show that there is some “genetic potential”, and these genes also varies according to gender. In women, the genetic variations most closely associated with the appeal in the face is the gene affects weight or height. While in men, the genetic variation linked to genes affecting cholesterol levels in the blood.
Similar to other characteristics in humans, there is no “gene commander” decided the attractiveness of a person instead, beauty is associated with many different genetic factors.
Mutable gene not beauty?

In addition, the standards of beauty are constantly changing with time and cultural characteristics. So if we can change or actively create attractive appearance does not?
Up to the present time, the scientists were able to identify the components in the gene plays a decisive role, or have contact with some of the characteristics appearance or hormones. However, to actually intervene in the genes or genetic control, the ability of this beauty is still pending in the research community in the future.
Standards of beauty course will vary according to time, culture or personal comments like “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. The story of Beauty and the relationship with GM still need more research results to strengthen further.
