Yogurt May Give You Giant Testicles (If You're A Mouse)
And it wasn't just that the yogurt-fed mice got to parade around with their newly massive balls. In mating experiments, yogurt-eating males "inseminated their partners faster and produced more offspring than control mice." The lady mice that ate the yogurt gave birth to larger litters and weaned those pups with greater success. Scientists believe that "probiotic microbes in the yogurt help to make the animals leaner and healthier, which indirectly improves sexual machismo." What's more, both male and female yogurt-eating mice also had luxuriantly silky fur.
