Scientists have more good news for coffee drinkers. Researchers have already found evidence that the drink, or the beans it's brewed from, can help with weight loss, reduce the risk for Alzheimer's and even reduce the risk of premature death. Now comes word that it may reduce pain. Researchers from Norway's National Institute of Occupational Health and Oslo University Hospital cautioned that the study wasn't designed to test coffee's influence on pain and the results come with uncertainties. But they noticed that 19 people who drank coffee reported a lower intensity of pain than 29 who didn't. It was published in the journal BMC Research Notes.
