Distillations second installment of Blood, Sweat, and Tears is ripe with great information about sweat. (Get it? HA!) First, our assistant producer Anne Fredrickson has a thoroughly entertaining segment on the history of deodorants, complete with some hilarious archival footage. Then reporter Gretchen Cuda Kroen explains how researchers are using sweat to analyze both the physical and mental health of their patients.
Plus, super-talented producer Josh Kurz made this most awesome video for us: A Distillations Explainer on Sweat Glands.
