Doctors used to think that brain freeze was caused by sensitive teeth, but apparently this isn’t the case.
Instead, those awful headaches are caused by the cold food hitting the roof of your mouth, and the angle at which the food enters your mouth as well.
Apparently, the trick is to eat your ice-cold food with a spoon, and position it in a way so that it doesn’t hit the roof of your mouth. That way your brain won’t get the memo that it’s supposed to shrivel up and cause you crippling pain right in the middle of your ice-cream.
We’ll be putting a lot of thought into how we use our spoons from now on anyway!
