Study: Swearing is Good Pain Relief

"Swearing provokes an emotional flight-or-flight response in the face of stress," lead researcher Dr Richard Stephens told The Scotsman. "This study shows that if people want to benefit from swearing they should save it up for when it really matters, when they are in genuine pain."

Stephens however, claims that advocating the use of swearing in pain management could cause more problems than it is worth for the health industry.

Seriously, if that's a good pain relief, it's probably not to those that hearing them. I couldn't imagine walking around and hearing those words thrown around like a part of speech.
