Study finds new benefit of coffee: It reduces pain
LOS ANGELES – Scientists in Norway have more good news for coffee drinkers. Researchers have already found evidence that the drink – or the beans it’s brewed from – can help with weight loss, reduce one’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, boost muscle growth, protect against certain types of cancers and can even reduce one’s risk of premature death, among many other benefits.
Now comes word that a cuppa joe reduces physical pain.
The surprising finding is based on a study involving 48 volunteers who agreed to spend 90 minutes performing fake computer tasks meant to mimic office work. The tasks were known to cause pain in the shoulders, neck, forearms and wrists, and the researchers wanted to compare how people with chronic pain and those who were pain-free tolerated the tasks.
