This Just In...

Study: Placebos Make People Feel Better
"Patients will feel better if they believe they're taking painkillers — even if their doses contain no medication, according to a University of Michigan study.

The study, examining the placebo effect, shows that the brain releases chemicals that relieve pain in patients who believe they're being treated."
In other news, scientists discover that Bactine helps the hurt stop hurting, Band-Aids make the owie go away and a spoonful of sugar in fact does help the medicine go down. In a most delightful way.

Good night, and have a pleasant tomorrow.
