October 30, 2013: Wigged Out By Thoughts Of Mortality? Take Tylenol!


Daniel Randles and his colleagues from the University of British Columbia have just completed a study that seems to indicate that metaphysical angst can be treated with over-the-counter Tylenol. Specifically, acetaminophen seems to alleviate the feeling of existential pain you feel when you contemplate something horrible (like your own death) or experience something surreal (like a David Lynch movie -- I'm not kidding, this was actually in the study). Incidentally, we apparently already knew that acetaminophen could treat emotional pain, like from a bad breakup. Tylenol: not just for headaches anymore. (Of course, you should use it only as directed...)
