Study: Eating Ice Cream For Breakfast Could Make You Smarter

If you’ve been looking for an excuse to eat ice cream for breakfast you now have one. A Japanese scientist claims that people who eat the treat immediately after waking up can become smarter. Professor Yoshihiko Koga with Tokyo’s Kyorin University had test subjects eat either ice cream or a normal breakfast and then complete mental exercises on a computer. He found the ice cream eaters were better at processing new information and showed faster reaction times. Brain scans revealed the ice cream eaters had an abundance of high-frequency Alpha-waves, which are linked with reduced mental irritation and high alertness. Koga is now doing more research to narrow down precisely which ingredient in ice cream causes this phenomenon. (Daily Mail
