Beer For Pain Relief

More good news you can use. A recent study is claiming that two pints of beer are more effective than Paracetamol (Acetaminophen) for pain relief. Frankly, I'm not sure how much of a revelation it is to find that alcohol reduces pain — I've been known to "relax" my sore muscles with a beer or two.

This sentence in the article did jump out at me...
Now the experts are planning to find out if alcohol either lowers anxiety of pain, which then reduces the perception of discomfort, or if it numbs the sensation of pain by affecting the brain receptors

Science. It's all about the details.
