Benefits of crying tears, science of crying, releasing toxins. It sounds funny, but if you eat a lot you naturally have to release a lot into the toilet. Likewise, if you drink a lot, you're going to have a similar result. Crying is the same. But the crazy thing is that people do not know they are taking in painful feelings and painful thoughts, let alone understand how to release them from their system. Crying is perhaps the easiest and fastest way to release emotional pain, but unfortunately it has become socially unacceptable for both men and women to cry in public. We are already aware of all the social stigmas attached with those who cry in public (ie: weakness, in need of attention, etc.), but what most people are not aware of is the new scientific studies that actually prove tears caused from 'emotional crying' carry toxins not normally found in the tear created to simply moisten the eye. Crying, like sneezing, coughing, defocating and even breathing, is a natural way of releasing toxins that are associated with ill-health caused by emotional pressure, stress and mis-use of the body in pursuit of pleasure or security.
