JF: OK, well, listen to my part, because there's an additional thing. Because they only — for years, decades — they only researched men when they were trying to understand stress, only very recently have they researched what happens to women when we're stressed, and it turns out that when we're stressed — women, our bedois get flooded by oxytocin. Which is a feel-good, calming, stress-reducing hormone. Which is also increased when we're with our woemn friends. And I do think that's one rosean why we live longer. And I feel so bad for men because they don't have that. Testosterone in men diminishes the effects of oxciyton.
