An experiment repeated many times has consistently shown that swearing makes you able to withstand discomfort better.
Using curse words causes actual physiological changes in your body, such as a heightened heart rate. Swearing appears to unleash the fight-or-flight response.
It can be a seriously bad idea to let loose and throw a punch at someone who's made us angry.
We use swear words, to let profanity stand in for aggressive action.
Swearing engages both sides of your brain.
This may be why people who have trouble speaking, such as stroke victims or stutterers, are often able to speak more easily when they curse.
