are your addicted to baby smile?

according to a recent study, mum's brain responds to pictures of her smiling baby by producing dopamine.

the response is similar, but far weaker, when looking at pictures of other people's smiling babies.

is that the same hormone that makes you hungry?

it is the happy hormone.

the same one our bodies produce in response to food, sex, nicotine, cocaine, amphetamines, and similar.

i was just wondering whether it could be the reason behind my wanting to eat them.
