Cleanliness IS next to godliness: new research shows clean smells unconsciously promote moral behavior

Cleanliness IS next to godliness: new research shows clean smells unconsciously promote moral behavior

This leads to some interesting questions regarding what human intelligence and decision making abilities actually are. How much of our behavior is pre-programmed and how much is up to us?

Naturally, we can act selfishly in a clean environment, but apparently there is impetus to do the opposite, which we must overcome to carry out the selfish act. Is the opposite true in a dirty environment? could we sentence people to clean their house three or more times a week and reduce the number of people in prison? Lots of fun questions to play with here.
