YOUR MORNING CUP MAY MAKE YOU LESS SENSITIVE TO PAIN
In a recent study published in the journal Psychopharmacology, 62 adults were asked to track their caffeine intake for seven consecutive days. They were then tested to see how varying levels of pressure and pain affected them (in a controlled, laboratory setting), and whether the caffeine made any difference. The researchers discovered that consuming more caffeine on a regular basis makes you less sensitive to physical pain.
Sounds like someone needs to write a Coffeewoman superhero comic, if you ask me.
