According to a new study, drinking two beers is more effective than taking painkillers when in pain. As part of the research, around 18 studies were conducted. From these, it was found that slightly raising the alcohol content in your blood level can result in an increased pain threshold.
“Findings suggest that alcohol is an effective analgesic that delivers clinically-relevant reductions in ratings of pain intensity, which could explain alcohol misuse in those with persistent pain, despite its potential consequences for long-term health.” A researcher noted.
However, the study doesn’t say that alcohol is good for health.
