    Default Placebos Can Be Bona Fide Painkillers

    By Marco Accossato
    LA STAMPA/Worldcrunch

    Memories formed following previous intake of actual drugs are triggered by a placebo pill resulting in a real effect to fight pain and inflammation, according to a new Italian study. First thing, though, you better trust your doctor.

    Not that I believe in trusting doctors or anything, but I thought this was interesting.

    OH goody!!! Now they have a solution to the narcotics problem. Give all chronic pain patients placebos instead and voila...not more drug problems, physical dependence, crime and patients get on with their life

    Now, I do totally believe in the powers of the mind and there are so many things not known about the brain and the myriad of chemicals it produces... I don't think many of us here would respond, lol. Trust the doctor???????
