Soon, a love pill that helps people fall head over heels for anyone!January 8th, 2009 - 2:12 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 8 (ANI): For people who thought love was miles away from their lives, take heart, for scientists are on the way to develop a potion which could be slipped into a sweetheart’’s drink to trigger everlasting love.
Yes, you heard it right, scientists believe that one day the feelings of love can be induced by popping a pill or smelling perfume, reports the Telegraph.
Researchers are developing drugs that can boost that most human of emotions.
The research team is studying the brain chemistry held responsible for the complex feelings that draw people to a particular member of the opposite sex.
Animal testing is beginning to shed light on the complex neural and genetic components of love in the same way they have led to pharmaceutical therapies for anxiety, phobias and post-traumatic stress disorders.
The behavioural scientist Professor Larry Young, of Emory University, Georgia, writing in the journal Nature, said: “For one thing, drugs that manipulate brain systems at whim to enhance or diminish our love for another may not be far away.” (ANI)
