Belive It Or Not, Eating Ice Cream For Breakfast May Help Improve Mental Performance!


Acually, a Japanese website says ice cream is the perfect morning jolt. That is, eating ice cream can improve alertness and mental performance, as professor Yoshihiko Koga of Kyorin University says in his study .

For the purpose, Koga, in the study, compared the brain activity of participants who had ice cream right after waking up with those who did not. As a result, he found out that participants who had ice cream had faster reaction times and less mental irritation than those who hadn't.


Firstly consider the fact how this Japanese study went viral on English-language media before you start replacing your Cheerio's with Ben & Jerry's.

Indeed, this study was supported by a sweets company, as the Japanese website that originally popularized the study mentioned. Not to mention, the Japanese website does not link directly to the study itself, which makes it impossible to fact check.

Homemade ice cream is made from common ingredients we have in our kitchen, namely egg yolks, sugar, whole milk, and heavy cream. In comparison, conventional ice cream, like Ben & Jerry's, has other such ingredients as soybean oil, corn syrup, and pectin.

The medical world says that one serving of Ben & Jerry's contains 260 calories, 23 grams of sugar, and 14 grams of fat, which is bad for our health, but a serving of Cheerio's with whole milk has 260 calories, but only 1 gram of sugar and 2 grams of fat.

A bowl of dairy for breakfast that contains a low sugar cereal with organic milk is a nutritious breakfast option as well as a whole lot better than Cheerio's. A diet high in sugar, according to Harvard Medical School, increases the risk of heart disease. Clearly, when you hear such things you may think this is only true of people who are overweight. But, sugar is equally as dangerous for people of a healthy weight as for people of an unhealthy weight.

Women should consume less than 100 calories of sugar per day, and men should consume less than 150, as the American Heart Association recommends. Indeed, a single serving of ice cream contains nearly 100 percent the recommended total amount of sugar, considering there are 4 calories in 1 gram of sugar. I can tell that ice cream for breakfast is a less than ideal choice.

Worse, sugar is not only bad for the heart, it is also food for cancer. According to Beat Cancer, cancer cells are fueled by sugar. Sugar can cause the immune system to be suppressed and creates an acidic environment, in which cancer thrives. The medical words explains that sugar is directly related to cancer in the breast, prostate, endometrium, and pancreas, as well as it causes obesity, which is linked to cancers of the esophagus, pancreas kidney, gallbladder, breast, and colon.
