The Science Of Heartbreak Explained With Cartoons

Having your heart broken is one of the most painful experiences one can go through, arguably much worse then getting a punch to the face.

Through cartoons and simple images, ASAP Science has made a lighthearted and very informative video explaining the link between emotions, bran functions, and physical reactions, and most importantly, how to truly help someone with a broken heart.
