Love Stinks

Part I – A biologist in Pennsylvania has isolated a chemical from the sweat of young women that makes older women more affectionate. When Pheromone 10:13, which sounds more like a missing passage in the Bible than a romance inducer, was added to a perfume and given to older women, 41 percent of them said there was “more petting, kissing and affection with partners.” Don’t get any ideas. This isn’t a license to steal that woman’s towel at the gym.

Part II – A psychologist in London says lovesickness can kill and should be taken more seriously as a legitimate diagnosis, saying “People can die from a broken heart.” But it’s not always that bad. He says in lesser instances it can lead to an extreme state of physical exhaustion, drive people to take their own life, and lead to psychiatric symptoms including mania, an elevated mood, inflated self-esteem, depression, and aspects of obsessive compulsive disorder. Look for Merck or Pfizer to release a cure soon.
