You Wouldn't Want to Live Without Pain!
by Fiona MacDonald
Imagine living in a world without pain. You wouldn't get headaches or stomach aches, and it wouldn't hurt when you cut yourself or touched something hot. A pain-free world may sound wonderful, but if pain did not exist, our lives would be very dangerous. We probably wouldn't survive for long. We would certainly be less healthy. And, just perhaps, we'd feel less good about ourselves. Learn about the science behind ow our bodies are able to experience pain, the ways pain helps us to stay safe, and the ghastly reality of life before modern painkiillers.
