Beer is a better pain reliever than Tylenol

May 5, 2017

If you like drinking beer, then I have some good news for you. Scientists did a study at the University of Greenwich, and they found that beer was actually better at alleviating pain than most over the counter pills you can buy at the drug store, including Tylenol and generic acetaminophen. 

They found that having a blood alcohol content of 0.08% significantly increased your tolerance for pain. That's about three or four beers worth. 

This doesn't mean that you should get drunk every night and join a fight club. But the next time you get hurt, instead of swearing under your breath, consider it an excuse to enjoy a nice beverage!
