Sweet treat overload? Expert explains causes of brain freeze in video

We hope that you’ve had a wonderful and relaxing Labor Day holiday weekend and that you’ve gotten to spend time with family and friends.

Are you planning a traditional Labor Day cookout today, complete with foods grilled to perfection? For dessert, perhaps you plan to dive into a bowl of ice cream to cool off from the still-hot weather?

Before you take that first bite, watch this video featuring Dr. Cassius Bordelon, professor emeritus at Baylor College of Medicine, as he explains the causes of brain freeze – that painful effect of eating too much ice cream, too quickly.

Looking for a few last-minute ideas to cool off while you’re outdoors this Labor Day? See our recipe for a lighter margarita plus other low-calorie summer treats.
