Why do we feel sleepy after eating?
« on: 08/10/2013 11:30:01 »
So Jung asked the Naked Scientists:
   I am a sixth-form student studying at an American School in Rabat, Morocco.

I was absolutely delighted to find your podcast on my round of podcast-hunting! I wanted to find a podcast that is consistently shorter than an hour yet entertaining - and now I think I found the perfect one.

So here are a few questions that I am really curious about:
1. Why do we feel sleepy after eating?
2. Why does breath smell immediately after waking up?
3. Why is whipped cream so filling? And is it bad for us?

Thank you,
-So Jung

What do you think?
