A lot of people swear that wasabi clears the nasal passages. A lot of other people say it doesn’t. So- who’s right?

It seems that noted Doctor, David Cameron queried 22 people. He asked them to breathe through their nose just before and just after eating wasabi straight up. Fifteen participants had measurable nasal congestion after eating the wasabi. The odd part is, though, that they all thought they were actually breathing better! According to the doctor, however, their nasal passages grew more narrow after eating wasabi.

Darn! Another folk remedy out the window. Gues it’s back to good old regular “chrain.”
