We’re often told that swearing is outrageous or even offensive, that it’s a sign of a stunted vocabulary or a limited intellect. Dictionaries have traditionally omitted it and parents forbid it. But the latest research by neuroscientists, psychologists, sociologists and others has revealed that swear words, curses, and oaths can have surprising benefits for your Health.
Swearing can reduce stress, can increase pain tolerance and is a harmless, creative emotional release that can make you feel stronger and express your anger without resorting to physical violence.
