Pain killers: worth the pain?

by Jaan

An article published in The Guardian highlights an on-going debate: are pain killers really worth the pain?

We are all aware that everything we consume has side-effects, though, this is dependent on the frequency and dose of consumption.

I am a strong believer in using diet and lifestyle to control one’s health. Perhaps if people stop eating McDonald’s every other day, they won’t get that random pain in their body and won’t need to take medicinal drugs.

Medicinal drugs should be a last resort, but, for most people, they are the first resort. This is where the problem lies.
