Ahhh,Brain Freeze

Nothing ruins the refreshing consumption on a cold subtance on a hot day like a painful 'brain freeze',also known as an ice cream headache.Fortunately,if you are a victim of brain freeze,you aren't completely helpless in the matter.

What causes brain freeze ?
when the cold object touches the roof of your mouth ,the blood vessels contract in response in an effort to prevent loss of body heat.As the coldness recedes,the blood vessels relax again ,quickly increasing blood flow to the brain.This sudden release is what causes the intense headache sensation .

How to stop brain freeze?
-prevent cold from touching the roof of your mouth.
