Swearing is good for your health...

Swearing can be a powerful painkiller according to scientists from Keele University - though some people may turn the air blue when they read about their research.

The boffins at the Staffordshire institution discovered that letting loose with a volley of post-watershed language can have a 'pain-lessening effect'.

They came to this conclusion after getting a group of 71 students to shove their hands into icy buckets of water and hold them there for as long as they could bear, while swearing non-stop.

Then the under-graduates repeated the exercise, but kept their language clean. More...
