Your Health: 5-3-13 Promising treatment for Infidelity

Scientists say an antibiotic may help men be faithful partners.

Japanese researchers are studying the effects of a treatment of the antibiotic, Minocycline on men and their fidelity.

Male participants were shown pictures of eight women and asked to rate their trustworthiness.

Study results showed trusting behavior in male participants significantly increased in relation to the perceived attractiveness of the female partner, but that attractiveness did not impact trusting behavior in men in the minocycline group.

Some call it "reducing the risk of the honey-trap".

Recently, minocycline, a tetracycline antibiotic, has been reported to improve symptoms of psychiatric disorders and to facilitate sober decision-making in healthy human subjects.
