Falling in love can seriously damage your health

LoveFalling in love can seriously damage your health, scientists warned today.

Researchers at Imperial College said the range of physical effects caused by the ups and downs of romance can cause serious long-term damage to the human body.

"Our bodies are constantly going through a rollercoaster of emotions and love has some very obvious physical effects," said Professor Martin Cowie of Imperial College.

"Our pupils dilate, our palms become sweaty and the heart rate increases. We have large amounts of adrenaline running through our system and that does cause problems for the body." Professor Cowie said stress related illnesses at work arose from near-identical physical phenomena.
