Why Chemotherapy cannot cure the cancer of love.

A scientific, biological and chemical investigation into the nature of perhaps the ultimate mystery: Love.
When you sight a potential lover, the brain releases a set of chemicals; including pheromones. Dopamine, Norepinephrines and Serotonin.
These chemicals activate the brains pleasure centre mainly the nucleus accumbens.
Their immediate after effects include higher heart rate, loss of appetite, sleep and intense excitement.
For lasting long term bonds, two more chemicals must kick in; oxytocin and vasopressin.
Studies reveal that emotions stimulated by such chemicals, sustain a relationship for about one and half years.This confirms the cooling off of relationship after two years, leading to the “seven year'’ itch.
By contrast lust is much simpler as it works on testosterone for men and oestrogen for women.
