STUDY: A FEW PINTS OF BEER WILL EASE YOUR HEADACHE BETTER THAN PAINKILLERS: If you get a headache, you may want to knock back a few beers. New research published in The Journal of Pain reveals two pints of beer will ease your aches better than a painkiller will. University of Greenwich did 18 studies and concluded that beer can cut discomfort by 25 percent when your body's blood alcohol level hits 0.08 percent. Study leader, Dr. Trevor Thompson, says, "We have found strong evidence that alcohol is an effective painkiller. It can be compared to opiod drugs such as codeine and the effect is more powerful than paracetamol." Even though the study suggests a few beers will help ease your pain better than painkillers will, you still need to drink responsibly, as drinking too much can cause you more issues in the long run.
