Entry #158: Why Adults Cry, a scientific investigation.

In a move that may be a case of too little, too late, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has expressed an overwhelming sense of emotions regarding her bid for the White House. “This is very personal for me. It’s about our country, it’s about our kids’ future, it’s really about all of us together,” a misty eyed Clinton said.

With everyone getting sentimental and nostalgic (minus John Edwards) about the yesteryears and their love for their country, Design Nature decided to do a little investigation about tears and why it can sometimes feel so damn good to let it all out. See video of Clinton here

According to a number of sources, tears are the product of chemical reactions that occur in your body during moments of stress. Humans have a total of 21 tear duct glands. Various combinations work together to form three different types of tears that are composed of different elements.

The first type consists of the tears that form when particles including wind, force, and bugs enter your eye.
