All You Need Is Oxytocin

Oxytocin, a hormone used to induce labor, is also the ultimate love drug. It is released during sexual arousal, orgasms and birth, and produces feelings of love and attachment. Just the sight of a baby releases the substance in adults and fosters acceptance and bonding. Maybe we should replace bullets with oxytocin darts in war zones and see if peace comes raining down.
