Israelis are a pain...

Maybe navigating through the chaotic traffic has something to do with it- JTA: Israelis have a higher incidence of chronic pain than do people in other countries, a study found. According to Ben-Gurion University data released this week, 46 percent of Israelis report suffering from chronic pain, while such complaints occur in only 10 percent to 40 percent of foreign populations. Two-thirds of Israeli sufferers are women, and 40 percent fall between the ages of 25-50. The most common form of Israelis’ chronic pain is back pain — connected, perhaps, to training during mandatory military service. (My shoulder hurts posting all of this.)
