Learn the truth about the love hormone

For a long time, it was thought that oxytocin (otherwise known as the '"love hormone") directly brought about feelings of empathy, trust, and happiness in human beings.

This may have implications, among other things, for the way in which oxytocin is used to treat patients with autism. Intrigued? Check out this gallery to learn all about oxytocin.

Roman mythology: important gods and goddesses everyone should know

The ancient Romans were followers of paganism, a religion with a variety of different gods and goddesses. Each played an important role in different aspects of their everyday lives. The Roman Empire was primarily a polytheistic civilization, which meant that people recognized and worshiped multiple deities. The Romans adopted a lot of the Greek gods into their own religion, combining them with the older Etruscan gods that the Romans worshiped before. However, as the years went by and with the emergence of Christianity, their polytheistic religion started to slowly decline, eventually disappearing completely.

Why the news about "cocaine sharks" is even worse than you think

It is well known that our environment is in danger. It's perhaps less acknowledged that every species, even if it seems menacing, is important to maintaining the balance of our ecosystem. If our ecosystem is not balanced, it's only a matter of time before the negative effects are felt in the form of resource shortages, mass extinctions, and further global warming. A very important animal in the ocean ecosystem is the shark. For a long time, humans have feared sharks and have been convinced that they are a danger. While they may pose an immediate threat if you are swimming near them with a cut leg, sharks don't actually attack that many humans. On the contrary: humans kill millions of sharks every year, accidentally and intentionally. Recently, the human impact on the endangered shark population reached a new low. Scientists captured 13 sharpnose sharks from the Brazilian coastline off Rio de Janeiro and found that they all had high levels of cocaine in their bodies. The findings were published in the journal Science of the Total Environment and explained that they all tested positive for the recreational drug, which had likely entered the water via the city's sewage system. They theorized that it could have come from illegal cocaine farms, the untreated bodily waste of cocaine users, or even bales of the drug abandoned in the ocean by smugglers. It's the first time cocaine has been detected in free-roaming sharks, and scientists are concerned about the impact it will have on their health and behavior. It's concerning to think of sharks becoming more unpredictable and aggressive, which are the side effects noted in some humans who take the drug. "Cocaine targets the brain, and hyperactive and erratic behaviour has been noted in other animals. It's a possibility and further studies are required," said Enrico Mendes Saggioro, an ecotoxicologist from the Oswaldo Cruz Institute. Ecologists have long warned of the dangers of industrial pollution and overfishing, but drug pollution is an entirely new threat to reckon with. The repercussions of our actions will lead not only to the eventual extinction of sharks, but also to the destruction of many water ecosystems. To understand why sharks are so crucial to our world, and how we can help their survival, click through this gallery.
