HOW SAYING CUSS WORDS REDUCES PHYSICAL PAIN

Next time you fall down the stairs, or step on a pointy nail, yelling out a cuss word might reduce the pain according to findings from a scientific study. Not only did the study show that cussing could reduce the pain, but that people could tolerate the pain longer.

 

The experiment had 71 college students put their hands inside extremely cold water for as long as they could. One group was told to scream out a cuss word of their choice while a second group was asked to scream out a non-cuss word. Then, both groups changed places, using the word they haven’t tried.

 

What researchers found, was that 73 percent of the group that used a cuss word were able to keep their hands inside freezing water 31 seconds longer than the group that used a non-cuss word. The study also noted that the more you cuss on a daily basis, the less effective it is at reducing pain.
