You Must Trust Me...You Must

Chills went down my spine when I read this story:

Swiss and American scientists demonstrate in new experiments how a squirt of the hormone oxytocin stimulates trusting behavior in humans, and they acknowledge that the possibility of abuse can't be ignored.
"Of course, this finding could be misused," said Ernst Fehr of the University of Zurich, the senior researcher in the study, which appears in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature. "I don't think we currently have such abuses. However, in the future it could happen."

No, of course not. Nobody abuses anyone's trust these days.

Where can I get some???

My dad sent me an e-mail asking the same question. I don't think I'm telling either one of you.

Oxytocin, that is the stuff that stimulates mammary milk production, and it also induces labor. This I know from recent experience.

Trust? I guess so, but what are you going to do when you are in contractions and bursting with mothers milk?
