Science Says People Who Curse A lot Are Healthy AF

I grew up with two older sisters who are much older than I am. When I was 6-years-old, my eldest sister was already 16-years-old, which means, there was always some foul language going on around the house. I quickly picked up some not-so-good words when I was super young, so much so that my mom frequently put soap in my mouth (unsure as to what her point was, I still say f*ck like it’s going out of style). While many people believe swearing and using cus-words is inappropriate and in bad taste, it turns out that there are some benefits in having a potty mouth.

According to science and some studies, there’s a bunch of reasons that swearing is good for you. Researchers have decided that those who swear regularly are more happy, healthy, intelligent and of course, honest.
