Women identical easier to cry and shed tears than men. What makes a man very difficult to cry or shed tears? Several recent studies that study the biological forces and processes crying indicate that there are different kinds of tears and crying differences in the way men and women.
“Men are also taught not to cry, it was not been helped by the hormone testosterone, which helps increase the threshold between emotional stimuli and discharge of tears,” says Dr. Louann Brizendine, a neuropsychiatric at the University of California, San Francisco, as quoted from Wall Street Journal .
Biologically women are more easily moved to tears than men. Based on research under the microscope is known that this is because of differences in the cells of a tear gland.
In addition, the tear ducts of men greater than women, so that if men and women cry at the same time the female will tear running down her cheeks faster than men.
So according to Dr. Brizendine there are some things that cause a man is more stingy than women’s tears are:
- Having higher testosterone so much stronger back tears
- Having a tear ducts larger that tears do not fall easily
- The differences in the cells of tear gland
Crying is a complex process, and the tears that came out there were two kinds of tears that helps wash the eye irritation from dust and emotional tears issued to respond to emotional stimuli and physical pain.
Tears came out when someone cries contains proteins, salts, hormones and other substances. But the tears coming out due to emotional contains a higher protein content.
One of the hormones that come out when crying is the hormone prolactin, which is a catalyst lactation (breastfeeding). In women who have reached the age of 18 years, the hormone prolactin level was increased 50-60 percent higher than men.
“We believe that this is one reason women cry more easily,” said Dr. William H. Frey II, a neuroscientist and biochemist from Regions Hospital in St.. Paul, Minnesota.
