英国 keele 大学的专家研究发现:咒骂以及发出一些粗俗的语言,可以拥有止疼效果。

为了证明这个理论研究人员把自愿者的手放入冰块中,他们不断咒骂。反复实验之后,发现有咒骂的人心率会加速,同时也可淡化疼痛效果。

研究人员发现咒骂不仅仅是一个情绪化的事情,而也可能反应到省力上。博士 richard stephens 说:人类从有语言开始,就有了咒骂。它由大脑中心控制,而不是像大多数语言一样由大脑左半球控制。这说明咒骂对人类可能还有一些潜在原因。

scientists from keele university found that letting forth a volley of foul language can have a powerful painkilling effect, especially for people who do not normally use expletives.

to test the theory, student volunteers placed their hands in a bucket of ice cold water while swearing repeatedly.

they then repeated the exercise but, instead of swearing, used a harmless phrase instead.

researchers found that the students were able to keep their hands submerged in the icy water for longer when repeating the swear word - establishing a link between swearing and an increase in pain tolerance.

they also found that the pain-numbing effect was four times more likely to work in the volunteers who did not normally use bad language.

the team believes the pain-lessening effect occurs because swearing triggers the ''fight or flight'' response.
