Paris Relieves Rodents

11/9/2007 1:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paris has the power to reduce the pain in mice. She might not be curing world hunger, but hey, it's a start.
Paris Mice
McGill University neuroscientists have discovered that a "Simple Life" cardboard cutout of the heiress has proven to reduce pain in male mice. Exposure to Paris' likeness actually lowered the expression of a gene called c-fos, which transmits pain signals to the brain.

This suggests that there is reduced neural activity in the mice, not unlike the reduced activity in the brain of Hilton herself.

Okay this is incredibly amusing but... I have to wonder about the scientist who thought of the idea for this experiment. Dude, are you for real?

It should be noted that the mice believed she was a predator and that's what caused the pain signals to cease!

She should copyright herself as a pain killer. Imagine the effect if they used a cardboard cutout of her in her sex flick.

All the haters come out as usual. Bet you're all a bunch of fat, ugly wenches who couldn't even get action with any guy even if he was drunk. Paris' hot looks can relieve all kinds of pain.

.... until she started to sing at which time the rats began shedding actually tears from their tiny eyes. Apparently rat's have more in common with humans than we every would have guessed.

Insert comical name here    

Whose picture did they show the mice to cause the pain in the first place, that horrible series of Pauly Shore? And what was the reaction of the female mice? And how do they know the pain lessened. This story raises more questions than answers.

At least Paris can soothe the savage beast?
Ah, I smell opportunity. Put her in the remake of 'Willard'.
