Swallowing an unusually large amount of ice cream causes headaches. This phenomenon was thought to be specific to the summer season.
A study in Canada contradicts this hypothesis. Thus, the team coordinated by Maya Kaczorowski of Hamilton University in Ontario studied the phenomenon thoroughly and came to the following conclusion: the headaches are conditioned by the speed with which we eat ice cream.
The coordinating doctor selected 145 students, formed two groups. The data collected showed that the little ones who ate more ice cream accused of headaches. But the headache was even more pronounced in the case of children who simply gave appreciable amounts of ice cream on the neck. It has to be said that some of the children made the delicious dessert ready in 5 to 30 seconds. And, really, very quickly the headache was installed.
These results confirm that headaches occur both in summer and in winter, if the portions are huge and swallowed quickly. However, this preparation is rich in valuable nutrients, which is why we should not give up, but only learn to enjoy it.
