Migraines, Food and the Connection Between Them

The Connection Between Migraines and food

Many studies link diet and migraines, and the findings point to certain foods that are more likely to affect people with migraine. 

We've compiled a list of common triggers.

Migraine is not just a headache, and a person who has experienced migraine will do anything to avoid the intense pain, the feeling of knocking on the side of the head, the accompanying nausea and sensitivity to light and noise.

Recent studies link diet and migraines, and the findings point to certain foods that are more likely to affect people with migraine. 

Today, the recommendation is to have an eating diary, document what you ate, and how you felt afterwards to try to identify patterns.

Migraines and food

List of foods known as "trigger" foods that might trigger migraines in susceptible people.


  • Processed meats are the most common triggers. It is recommended to avoid sausages and sausages, canned or smoked meat.

Dairy products 

  • Processed dairy products contain thiamine. Dairy products such as sour cream and ravine are familiar triggers, as well as processed cheeses such as cheddar, mozzarella, yellow cheese, blue cheese, feta, parmesan and more.


  • Papaya, kiwi, pineapple, citrus fruits, plums and figs. In addition, bananas and avocados are also very ripe.


  • Onions, Chinese peas, and fresh garlic


  • It is recommended to avoid all chocolate drinks, caffeinated drinks and alcoholic beverages (which increase blood flow to the brain), especially beer, champagne and red wine.

Processed food 

  • Foods that contain preservatives, salts and so forth lead to the expansion of the blood vessels and cause headaches. Especially recommended is MSG, which is found in Asian sauces and other foods.

Cold food

  • Many of those suffering from migraines report cold food sensitivity.

Other foods

  • Peanuts, peanut butter, various grains, pizza, potato chips, chicken liver and internal organs, smoked fish, dried fruits, artificial sweeteners such as aspartame.

Researchers Identified a Virus that Attacks Cancer Cells

Researchers identified a virus that attacks human cancer cells can distinguishes Healthy cells.
Audio Version Of This Post
Viruses are usually supposed to worry us, but this is not the case with inoculate viruses. those that infect cancer cells and kill them, ignoring healthy cells. So it is no wonder that the search for such viruses attracts many researchers.

The Seneca Valley virus.This virus also known as Senecavirus affects pigs and cows. In recent years it has been found that the virus attacks human cancer cells.

The ability to identify tumors and ignore normal cells tested in two trials. The first in relapsed solid tumors in children and the second in lung carcinoma.

Experiments also found that the immune system was removing the virus from the body. Thus preventing it from completing its anticancer action.
Ongoing research to understand how the Seneca Valley virus may be used for cancer treatments.Researchers at the University of Otago in New Zealand discovered in 2017. That the vi…

New study suggests, people with better sense of smell have a better sense of direction

People with a good sense of smell also have a better sense of direction, suggesting a link between the two systems, a new study suggestsWhy do we have a sense of smell?
The smell of fruit directs us (or at least the lemurs) to the most mature fruit, and even our interpersonal relationships are affected by scents. But some researchers believe that its first use by the first animals, the advantage it gave them over the lack of sense of smell, is navigation. 

Now researchers from Canada have shown that people with a better understanding of smell also navigate better.

The olfactory bulb, the region of the brain that receives information about odors from the nose and makes the initial processing of the smell, exists in many species of animals. It has identified in mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish, and there is a similar structure, even in crabs and insects. 

For some, the bulb is tiny compared to the size of the brain, and for others, it is enormous. A study published several years ago showe…

10 Incredible Scientific Breakthroughs and New Inventions

Scientific discoveries continue to appear every year. new discoveries in a variety of fields, from innovative solutions and treatments for common and deadly diseases to archaeological discoveries, space discoveries, and unusual scandals, learn about 10 groundbreaking scientific discoveries that have taken place and can certainly affect our lives in the near future.

1. Sickle cell anemia can be cured by transplantation of stem cellsSickle cell anemia is a severe and common blood disease in which more than 4 million people worldwide are infected.

In April, a pair of scientists at the National Human Genome Research Institute announced that they had completely cured a 26-year-old man with sickle cell anemia, Through the transplantation of healthy stem cells in the body, they hope and believe that similar results will also occur in the future as more patients receive similar treatment with stem cells.
2. Scientists have been able to stop and reverse the process of aging in miceAging is a natu…
