CTV.CA -- Aug 1 -- ScientificMatch.com, an online matchmaking company, pairs up singles based on differences in their DNA. According to Eric Holzle, founder of ScientificMatch.com, research shows that people (and animals) are attracted to potential mates who have different immune system genes, which ensures healthier relationships and children. The service will match both heterosexual and same-sex couples, but it does have some restrictions. Women on the pill cannot sign up because oral contraceptives trick a woman into thinking she's pregnant, which causes her to seek out people with similar genes. People who were not raised by their biological parents very early in life are also exempt from signing up, because research has shown that adoptees often seek out people based on their adoptive parents' immune system genes.
