We have gotten so caught up in new technology, advances in medicine, etc. we have forgotten that perhaps those that came before us knew a thing or two that we don't give them credit for! Remember the phrase "Take two aspirin and call me in the morning"? For a long time we have just thought that was a brush-off by the medical profession. Nope.
It turns out, that is just good advice! According to the University of British Columbia, the cure for everything from headaches to heartaches is...take two asprin! If you are undergoing some kind of existential angst...wondering what life is all about... remember, aspirin inhibits the brain signal that says something is wrong!
So, apparently, those doctors in the past knew that taking two aspirin and getting a good nights sleep would cure a lot of ills! Hmmm, I wonder what else they might be right about?
