Turkey Medicals – did you know that crying has many positive effects on your health? Some of us burst into tears from time to time, while others are almost cut off by a rock, and tears very rarely fall out of our eyes. However, in fact, we all need to cry once in a while because those drops that fall out of our eyes have many positive effects on our health.

Often women are famous for their tears. At the slightest thing that happens to them, they burst into tears. Although this condition is not very welcome, when evaluated from a health point of view, it is an extremely correct reaction.
