RESEARCH SHOWS CUSSING CAN BE GOOD FOR YOU
According to a study conducted at Marist College in New York and the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, people who use curse words artfully and persuasively tend to have a wider vocabulary, which is considered an indicator of intelligence. Also, expletives may have benefits. A 2011 study conducted at England's Keele University found that cursing can help us reduce and endure physical pain. In the workplace, other studies have shown, that cursing can help us communicate more persuasively and forge better teams. Of course, some expletives are more taboo than others. Be mindful of the risks of swearing when in public. There may be scientific acceptance, but not the same acceptance from family or coworkers.
