According to this Wikipedia page, a shade of pink colour known as "Baker-Miller_Pink" has been known to reduce aggressive behaviour.

Is there any biochemical reaction responsible for this?

Specifically, are any hormones responsible for this?

If yes, then which ones?

    $\begingroup$ Please put your sources in here, your question might otherwise be close as "primarily opinion based" or unclear. $\endgroup$ – Chris Feb 1 '17 at 14:58

    $\begingroup$ The page on Wikipedia says - research has shown conflicting results...., also see this ( orthomolecular.org/library/jom/1988/pdf/1988-v03n04-p202.pdf ) $\endgroup$ – JM97 Feb 1 '17 at 23:10

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as the quoted hypothesis is not valid according to recent published papers. $\endgroup$ – Tyto alba Feb 13 '17 at 19:44

    $\begingroup$ I think this question should remain open - a good answer should probably contain proposed hypotheses for the effect and any data towards a mechanism and/or a refutation of the existence of the phenomenon. I don't think a question should be closed based only on a faulty premise. $\endgroup$ – Bryan Krause Mar 1 '17 at 21:47
