What Chance at True Relief?
As I was reading this article called Boiling Mad: Crabs Feel Pain, I was feeling pretty appalled from my vegetarian viewpoint that people even boil crabs in the first place (sorry carnivores). Then I came across this paragraph.
"Interestingly, scientist don't fully understand pain in humans. It is felt when electrical signals are sent from nerve endings to your brain, which in turn can release painkillers called endorphins and generate physical and emotional reactions. The details remain unclear, which is why so many people suffer chronic pain with no relief."
If scientists are just now figuring out that a crab doesn't like to be boiled alive, what chance does a migraine chick have at finding true relief??
