Human tears carry a substance that dampens down aggression, according to researchers, who believe the drops may have evolved over time to protect wailing babies from harm.
The scientists add that sniffing a woman’s tears reduces aggressive behavior in men, according to a study published in PLOS Biology.
The study found that men who sniffed women’s tears were significantly less aggressive in a competitive game, with revenge-seeking behavior dropping by over 40%.
Tears are a wonderful gift from Almighty God, according to Shia Islam, rendering hearts more lenient and closer to the creator. Crying over the calamities endured by Ahlul-Bayt, peace be upon them, have been a highly recommended ritual in this faith.
