Brain Freeze!

Why does your brain freeze when you eat ice cream? I have always wondered about that. You are eating the flavor of your choice when all of a sudden BAM, this big almost headache like feeling gets in your brain. You hurt for a few moments then it goes away. What is that?

Well researchers may now have  an answer. It is all about blood flow in your head. They used an utlrasoundlike process on the skull. They saw that increased blood flow to the brain through a blood vessel called anterior cerebral artery which is located in the middle of the brain behind the eyes. The increase in flow and resulting increase in size in this artery brought on the pain associated with brain freeze. In other words, you ate your ice cream too fast and you ate too much ice cream. Well, that does it. I’m going to TCBY at 18th and State in Quincy. I have never got brain freeze there.
