LOVE DRUG: WESTERNERS ARE KINDER TO MIGRANTS WHEN GIVEN THE 'LOVE HORMONE' OXYTOCIN AND PUT UNDER PEER PRESSURE, SCIENTISTS FIND
ACADEMICS NOTE THAT PEOPLE TEND TO BE MORE 'ALTRUISTIC TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS THAN TO PERFECT STRANGERS' – BUT THINK THEY KNOW HOW TO CHANGE THIS.

Researchers from the University of Bonn said that humans tend to be generally kinder to friends and family than strangers.
"Given the right circumstances, oxytocin may help promote the acceptance and integration of migrants into Western cultures."
The suggestion that Westerners should be given drugs to make them more welcoming to foreigners is likely to be hugely controversial.
