I was very amused, to say the least; I even took a picture. Unfortunately, I cannot find that picture anymore.
|I did find my picture of Linkin Park, however.|
|Pain is bread. Isn't French great?|
|French sign art, on the other hand, is easy to find.|
This did turn up, however; I'm glad it did, insofar as Mason et al.'s work didn't seem to cover cross-species applicability. Sure, they said they "believe the same effects can be seen in humans," but I don't think that counts.
|Let's have some proof, aye?|
Anyway, the journal article described a similar process: a temperature change was applied to participants and differences in reaction to the pain were correlated to the ingestion of isoenergetic meals. In the abstract, the researchers concluded that fat-rich food significantly reduced the pain response to their stimuli; at some point - whether before or after, I do not know - they also concluded that their hard work was far too important to be posted for free on the internet, which should explain why I'm only citing the abstract.
(No, of course they didn't write that part in the abstract.)
I'll leave what all this implies to Ge's article; while hers is about smoking, her cited model presents a relationship which I believe could apply to food.
|What she said.|
