Coffee's aroma. . .
Posted 6/16/08
FRIDAY, June 13 (HealthDay News) -- Just sniffing that first hot cup of coffee in the morning may help ease some stresses you might be feeling, a South Korean trial indicates.

When rats inhaled the aroma of roasted coffee beans, a number of genes were activated, including some that produce proteins with healthful antioxidant activity, the researchers reported.

"The meaning of it is not totally clear yet," said Dr. Peter R. Martin, director of the Institute of Coffee Studies at Vanderbilt University. "What it does show is that coffee smells do change the brain to some degree, and it behooves us to understand why that is happening."

Yeah... i think i heard of this b4...

I think in Singapore they made an experiment
in where they made students take a test in a
room with the aroma of coffee...

Another test was then given to them with different
items but with the same degree of difficulty, also without
any coffee's aroma.

I was surprised to see that the students did better
when the aroma was arnd the classroom...
I dont entirely believe on this tho...
