Filed under: Etc.Business BlitzHealth

We had a feeling this was the case… which means all you bosses out there need to listen up!

It's true — the more vacation time the high the productivity and better quality of work.

So quit holding off and visit Nebraska like you've always wanted to.

Check out the video (above) for the full details — and some shocking stats about other countries' vacay times!

What IS Brain Freeze??

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueHealthScience!

Brain Freeze

We ALL (okay, only 1/3 of us) know what brain freeze is in terms of having felt it, and there's even a definition for it:

'Brain freeze is a painful— though harmless— sensation in the front or sides of the head occurring a few seconds after the rapid ingestion of cold foods or drinks[1].'

But what is it REALLY? What's going on to cause it??

We're about to get science on all of your asses! Ha!

Studies are now suggesting that when something cold comes into contact with the palate (particularly the back, topmost part of the mouth) it causes a sudden constriction of blood vessels.

This happens VERY quickly. So quickly that the change in temp alerts pain receptors to trigger nerves carrying nerves from the face to the brain.

These nerves usually sense face pain, so they tell the brain that it's coming from the forehead and not the mouth!

Weird!

The cure is to stop scarfing down cold things. Take the time to let your mouth get acclimated to the temp change!

Science! Science! Science!
