Scientists have been exploring new ways of coping with pain for many years and are now sharing their discoveries with the world in an exhibition at the London's Science Museum named "Pain Less: The Future of Relief," which opens on November 8. One of the more attractive aspects of this exposition is the study of how DNA affects the intensity with which we feel pain. Other surprising elements range from the use of venom (spiders, snakes, scorpions) as anesthetics to personal stories from people who face chronic pain on a daily basis.
