Sometimes you measure something and get a surprising result.  To do that, however, you have to spend most of your time measuring unsurprising results. ;-)

Driving fast cars boosts testosterone

Scientists at Concordia University in Montreal have found that driving 
fast cars boosts men's testosterone level which could lower the risk of 
heart disease, diabetes and depression.

They put men behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and then let them drive a 
16-year-old Toyota Camry and then tested their hormone levels.

After a spin in a sports car, testosterone levels increased significantly.

But after driving the family car, hormone levels stayed the same or even 

Scientists think this could explain why some men buy a sports car to 
help them through their mid-life crisis.
