The Brain Freeze


The Brain Freeze

Eating ice-cream might free your brains! This has been recently revealed according to a research which is of the view that eating ice-cream might result in giving one a freeze in the brain. This is the headache that tends to set upon as soon as one eats something very cold.

The scientists are of the view that this headache might be caused due to the freezing effect ice-cream tends to have on the brain of the person. The research done by a team from the National University of Ireland as well as the Harvard Medical School is of the view that this sort of brain freezing might tend to be dangerous for the brain in some cases. The reason for the pain in the head was found to be the sudden increase in the blood flow, through the anterior cerebral artery, the important blood flow vessel for the brain.

“The brain is one of the relatively important organs in the body, and it needs to be working all the time. It's fairly sensitive to temperature, so vasodilatation might be moving warm blood inside tissue to make sure the brain stays warm”, said Co-author Jorge Serrador of Harvard Medical School.

There is need for efforts to be made to find out ways for reducing this sort of harming effect on the brain. Eating cold food might tend to have this brain freezing effect, which is only for some time, but still might result in damage if not taken seriously. This is why it is essential that there is a way found to help the body resist this sudden change and not get too affected by the same in the future. There is need for more research to be done in this regard in the time to come.
