On the bustling streets of San Francisco, people can sense what’s grilling, baking and frying in restaurants from North Beach to Noe Valley without even looking at the menus, as myriad cuisines serve up a smorgasbord of aromas for the nostrils.[...] what most foodies and waist-watchers strolling by don’t realize, is that just smelling burgers, pizza, sushi, falafel and all the other sweet and savory offerings could be causing them to gain weight.Researchers Andrew Dillin and Celine Riera studied three groups of mice — normal mice, “super-smellers” and ones without a sense of smell — and saw a direct correlation between their ability to smell and how much weight they gained from a high-fat, “Burger King diet,” Dillin said.Other studies have shown that olfactory systems, the organs and lobes related to smell, can influence things like sexual behavior or fertility, but this study isn’t related to internal functions or hormones, said Riera, a former UC Berkeley postdoctoral fellow now at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.The mice in the study who lost their sense of smell also saw a significant increase in the hormone noradrenaline — a stress response from the nervous system that can lead to a heart attack if levels are too high.[...] it could also be an option for obese people who are considering such weight-reduction alternatives as stomach stapling or gastric-band surgery, even with the potential for high levels of noradrenaline.In the study, researchers injected a toxin that destroyed olfactory neurons in the nose, but they avoided the stem cells which allowed the neurons to grow back in three to eight weeks.Because once the sense of smell comes back, the weight could also return.

To spot who they are, have every new hire follow this rule for 90 days.
In 2010, I was an executive officer in the Navy, splitting my time between U.S. headquarters and being deployed to an international location.
