Neckties may reduce blood flow to brain

Posted: Updated:

GERMANY - A study suggests that ties might reduce blood flow to your brain.

The study from Germany is extremely small, and did not take into account a lot of factors that could have influenced the findings, like the kinds of ties they wore or how they wore them.

Still - MRI scans of the men showed a reduction in cerebral blood flow while wearing neckties.

It's still unclear what actual health effects this might have, but it's not a bad excuse if you prefer the casual look!
