Some Foods Can Trigger Migraines

,

SHAFAQNA- People who suffer from migraines often say that eating certain foods triggers their headaches, but a new study suggests that it might not always be the food per se — rather, the bacteria in the mouth may be playing a role.

The study found that people with migraines harbored more bacteria in their mouths that had the ability to modify chemicals called nitrates, compared to people without migraines.

Some migraine-triggering foods contain nitrates, including processed meats and green leafy vegetables, as well as certain medications.
