The love hormone? Never!

I'm taking the pledge: I will never describe oxytocin as the "love hormone." Gretchen Reynolds, writing in today's New York Times, is the most recent perpetrator. 

The idea that oxytocin is the love hormone or the morality hormone or the cuddle drug is, as Ed Yong put it, "dumb and dangerous."
