A Japanese scientist says that we should all make ice cream part of our well-balanced breakfast if we want to live up to our full potential. According to The Telegraph:
Yoshihiko Koga, a professor at Tokyo’s Kyorin University, has carried out a series of clinical trials in which test subjects were required to eat ice cream immediately after waking up.
They were then put through a series of mental exercises on a computer.
Compared to a group that had not eaten ice cream, Prof Koga’s subjects exhibited faster reaction times and better information-processing capabilities, the Excite News web site reported.
He also found that those who ate ice cream “had an increase in alpha brain waves”, which are related to low irritation and high alertness. Plus, ice cream puts everyone in a great mood!
