Have you ever wondered what makes us cry? Where the tears come from?

And why the runny nose?

I've always put it down to emotion, though I know there will be a scientific/medical answer someone on here will know or search for. Would your question really be where does the liquid come from? how do we produce liquid in our bodies without drinking it in?

I know that a lot of fluidy things in your body are it's way of sending 'help' or protection to the area that it sends it to...swelling and stuff like that is often the body sending fluid to the place....It's quite clever really....even on a stupid person, it works...

There are different types of tears, an irritated tear will have different chemicals in to sad tears and laughing to much tears, it seem to be the bodies way of ridding itself of excess hormones and the obvious getting rid of an irritant.

A certain amount of tears keep our eyes moist and clean all the time but emotions can trigger the brain to send more and these are the ones relating to crying. I think it’s excess tears which travel down the nose hence all the nose blowing at sad events.
