The video, posted by the Institute of Human Anatomy (IOHA), explains the science behind our tears. According to an IOHA employee, there’s a lot more than water coming out when we cry. In fact, there are tons of substances in our tears — ranging from hormones and electrolytes to mucus and fat molecules. The video goes on to show exactly where tears come from.
