Various studies and experiments that have taken place globally show that cursing is good for your mental and physical health.
Apparently, according to a Time article it can increase the levels of your intelligence due to the extended use of our vocabulary and the spontaneous quick way of thinking that it requires. People that express their anger verbally have a higher chance to become more clever than the once that suppress their anger
. A study that is recently published in Biological Psychology shows that cursing can make us less anxious and stressed as it releases all the unnecessary tension instantaneously. More precisely, when we are stressed the brain produces a hormone called cortisol and when we are swearing we tend to reduce the levels of cortisol that can be released. This hormone may cause various diseases or health problems such as a heart attack or tendencies for obesity. For more information, read the following article.

o it turns out that there is scientific evidence proving what the most, ahem, ‘creative linguists’ among us have intuited all along: Cursing is good for your health! Listed below are six points revealed by researchers on the subject.
1. Increase Your Intelligence!
Perhaps this is a bit of a hyperbole, however, science has dispelled the myth that cursing is just a replacement for poor vocabulary.
Turns out that mom and dad were always wrong about swearing making us look stupid!

It seems like we’re always rushing, rushing around in today’s world. If it’s not one thing, it’s the other: kids, work, life. It seems to never end.
With this is in mind, we need a healthy outlet. Well, a recent study published in Biological Psychology, displays of anger may lessen the release of cortisol (a hormone released by the brain when under stress), which in high amounts has been related to heart disease, bone loss and obesity.
So go ahead and let it all hang out. Don’t you feel so much better afterwards?
3. Increase Your Confidence!
While we would never advocate cursing at a superior, studies have shown that the occasional swear word can help us feel more in control of situations that we feel are out of hand. Richard Stevens, a researcher from Keele University…
