The Power of Tears

The Power of Tears

Riverside—On October 2, the Journal of Applied Physics reported on a recent study that revealed human tears have the potential to generate electricity. 

According to the study, tears contain an enzyme called lysozyme—the same enzyme found in saliva and mammalian milk. Researchers believe lysozyme, in its crystalized form, contains a property called piezoelectricity, which is the ability to generate an Alternating Current (AC). When a tear enzyme is placed under pressure, researchers noted, it can convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. 

Interestingly, the lysozyme enzyme is also anti-bacterial and can attack the cell walls of bacteria and cause it to weaken. To learn more about this research visit livescience.com/60599-electricity-generated-from-tears.html.
