We got an e-mail from Thomas Wayne today, who has a question for our readers here. Since there are several doctor-esque people that comment here, we decided to oblige his request.
This morning I had a headache. I tried resting some during lunch, and dozed off for a few minutes, but my head still hurt some. So I decided to eat. Today’s menu consisted of a sandwich — not too exciting, right? But there was a new bag of Cheetos in the cabinet, which I grabbed. I opened the bag and smelled the cheesy goodness, then proceeded to eat some. While eating, I felt better, not just from being happy because Cheetos are scrumptious, but my head wasn’t hurting as much. So I wondered if I should just keep eating Cheetos until my head didn’t hurt anymore. I ate quite a few Cheetos, and then my head hardly hurt at all.
Could I have stumbled onto a new cure for headaches? Does anybody have any research or theories or hypotheses that might back this up?
