The Love Hormones Emitted By Insects Can Help Doctors Prevent Premature Births

The science is complicated, and I cannot imagine how many years of stressful school I could tolerate before I gave up on the whole thing. Luckily there are, indeed some pretty smart folks out there that just want to do their part to better humanity. However, it seems that the humanitarian effort involves using the love hormones from insects to prevent premature births.

Specifically, the researchers developed a neuropeptide that will cause the brain of the pregnant mother to call off her premature birth. The neuropeptide accomplishes this physiological delay in birth with a series of different chemicals administered by a medical professional. One such chemical includes oxytocin, or the “love drug”. Also interesting, the scientists involved with this study believe that they will soon be able to develop pharmaceuticals that can make abortion measures and concerns obsolete. Hey, maybe I should start eating bugs; they seem to be saving everybody's life.
