Couples are spraying for an end to all arguments
A NASAL spray that stops couples ARGUING has been invented by boffins.
The new wonder spray is definitely not to be sniffed at after experts realised it can stop men and women bickering.
The spray contains the hormone oxytocin, and according to researchers it is a breakthrough in marital relations.
In a study scientists at the University of Zurich looked at the effects the spray had on stress and the activity of the nervous system during disagreements.
Couples aged 20 to 50, who were married or had been living together for at least a year, took part in the experiment.
They picked a topic they usually disagree on, then had five puffs of the spray. They were then left in a room together to discuss the subject – and boffins found that the spray reduced conflict.
The women became more friendly and the men displayed more positive behaviour.
Kavita Vedhara, boss of health psychology at Nottingham University, said: “This might help take the heat out of the argument but whether it helps to resolve the issues that lead to the arguments is not clear.”
