Why does our head hurt when we eat too much ice cream? How is it possible to communicate with people on the other side of the world without any wires? What is cellular architecture? Why do only some of us get allergies? We tackle these questions and more on this week's Ask the Naked Scientists! We also find out what causes gaut, reveal if bottled water is safer to drink than tap water, and discover how wind is created.
