This does give credence to the phrase lick one's wounds.

Hunters do that in the winter. They give the dogs a chance to lick their paws after getting on grice (grice is when the surface of ice has gotten gritty with little stalagmites); they start limping.

It might also promote felatio on school buses!

Well, if something's aching for love, kissing the booboo might make it feel better?

“Its pain-suppressive effect is like that of morphine,” says Catherine Rougeot at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France, who led the research. “But we have to test its side effects as it is not a pure painkiller,” she says. “It may also be an anti-depressive molecule.”
Is that why eating makes us happy?

I thought the addictive and psychological effects of morphine were half the reason it existed.

I don't think so, phil - otherwise being hungry would do the trick too [Smile]

Jesus used his spit to heal others.

Haven't we long known of the healing effects of saliva? Don't mouth wounds tend to heal more quickly than others?

(Slightly OT: Do any of you chew on the insides of your mouths? Perhaps the painkilling tendency of spit makes it easier than chewing on, say, one's arm?)

From the article:

“It may also be an anti-depressive molecule.”
So, why aren't we all walking around numb and happy?
