New study finds that eating bagels everyday increases IQ. According to a study released Wednesday by doctors at Yorkville University, eating bagels daily was found to be effective in increasing IQ levels. May we assume that bagels are brain food? Quite possibly. “We found that individuals who eat bagels on a daily basis increase IQ and this type of nutrition may be considered brain food,” lead specialist Dr. Fuwnkenhauser said of the study, which found that for every bagel digested per day, subjects could expect to gain an additional 50 brain cells.

“Even subjects who eat just half a bagel a day are likely to see an appreciable increase in the amount of brain cells. The real takeaway from our research is that just eating a few bagel bites daily may be enough to give you about 200 brain cells a week.” The study further notes that individuals who consume 5 or more bagels a week are able to study less while consistently passing exams. Fellow peers, acquaintances, coworkers, and black sheep family members may consequently despise this improvement in intelligence.

The next time you eat a bagel, just think of the intellectual benefits: improved test scores, better work performance, and maybe gaining that special edge in creative ability. Bagels are available Tuesday-Saturday at The Bakery on North Court Street in downtown Lewisburg.
