Happy Belated Valentine's Day: The Love Hormone??

From UPI:

"U.S. researchers say the "love hormone" or oxytocin, which releases during hugs or when a mother bonds with a newborn, may help mental disorders.

Dr. Kai MacDonald of the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine says oxytocin is a brain chemical associated with pair bonding, including mother-infant and male-female bonds and increased paternal involvement with children. "

And here I thought it was chocolate.....
