Female Tears as a Natural Deterrent to Male Aggression 

Beyond Emotion 

The scientific journal Plos Biology suggests that female tears contain a  chemical that reduces male aggression

Medium Brush Stroke

Humans aren’t the only ones who cry 

Chemicals in female mice tears affect the area of  male mice’s brains that control aggression, lessening it

Dogs Tears Tells a Tale 

Dogs’ tear volume increase, when they were reunited with their  owner but not with a familiar non-owner, suggesting they could cry emotional – happy – tears 

A Fragrant Shift 

According to the scientists, "after the men sniffed women's emotional  tears, their revenge-seeking aggressive behavior during the game dropped by about 44% – or nearly in half"

Hormones in Harmony 

Tears lowered Men's Testosterone levels, Physiological  indicators of Arousal and self-reported Sexual Arousal

Tearful Chemistry 

Chemosignals in human emotional tears have a primary aggression blocking function 

The scientists say this conclusion, published last week in PLOS  Biology, may extend to all human tears.
