Nobody has debunked the gender pay gap
Wrong. It's a myth.
They're under the impression that Oracle has been discriminating against pretty much everybody in one area or the other.
Bullshit. They're under the impression that Oracle was likely to roll over and take it in the ass just to avoid the bad publicity.

Let's not forget the effect of helicobacter pylori bacteria on ulcers, they are in general held to be the main cause these days.
I have another theory about the beneficial effect of aspirin, caffine, etc. We evolved with them. Our diet was rich in salycilates and chemicals similar to theobromine or caffine. They came from the plants we ate, some of which were mildly toxic and which we evolved to process to the point that we became dependent on some of their effects. There are a lot of things in the primitive diet that modern people don't eat much at all, like acorns which had to be soaked to remove alkalai and tannin.
If this is the case, taking aspirin and drinking coffee or tea replace substances found in a more primitive diet.
