Aggressive women

According to the recent research led by the University of Pittsburgh, the behavior of aggressive women is linked to the hormone serotonin. The low level of serotonin makes a woman behave in a more hostile and anxious manner, while the high level of serotonin improves a female's feelings of happiness and satisfaction. Moreover, the hormone serotonin turned out to be an effective stress killer.

The results of the research will be used not only by psychologists, but also doctors treating such diseases as cardiovascular diseases and glucose metabolism, closely linked to aggressive feelings. Now the doctors will be able to foresee the signs of hypertension and related diseases.
