Coffee can beat pain due to long hours at work
LONDON: Drinking a cup of coffee with breakfast can reduce pain triggered by spending hours at a computer at your workplace, a new study has claimed. Researchers from the University of Oslo found that coffee can lower office-related twinges and aches as caffeine is thought to stimulate receptors responsible for blocking pain, the Daily Mail reported. In the study, volunteers who undertook 90-minutes of intensive screen-based work without a break suffered fewer aches and pains in their neck, shoulders, arms and wrists if they downed a coffee before going to office. The team recruited 48 full-time office workers who were told they could drink coffee with their breakfast but to limit it to one cup.
