For the study, 100 participants ate a Nightmare King before going to bed.
The fast-food chain is offering the "spooky" sandwich October 22 through November 1. "The burger then transformed into the figure of a snake", another subject alleges.
Burger King has changed its menu in honor of Halloween, releasing the "Nightmare King" sandwich next week.
Burger King has another frightening item - the Frozen Fanta Scary Black Cherry.
The "spooky sandwich" has a quarter pounder of beef, a chicken filet, American cheese, bacon, mayonnaise and onion.
Burger King is celebrating Halloween in a big way.
"According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night", the study's lead doctor said in a statement obtained by the national newspaper chain.
CDC expresses concern over mysterious surge in polio-like paralysis cases
States are not required to provide this information to CDC, but they have been voluntarily reporting their data. Beginning in the summer and fall of 2014, an apparent increase in reports of AFM occurred in the United States.
Medina attributes the effect to a combination of proteins and cheese, but needless to say, it's possible that any burger eaten before bedtime could have similar effects.
But just how scientific was that clinical study?
Maybe not, according to LiveScience. "And what little data there is on food and nightmares suggests that, if anything, fast food should reduce bad dreams".
"Participants who expressed a preference for fast foods reported less frequent dream recall, as well as fewer recurring dreams, nightmares, and sexual dreams", the study said.
Whether the increased bad dreams would be due to the spirits of the multiple animals whose parts you'd be ingesting, or simple due to indigestion, "science" seemingly supports the notion.
The findings showed that, yes, the burger was able to induce more "vivid dreaming" and nightmares, but not because of any magical Halloween essence put into the burger. Did they do a control group?
"Caution: proceed at your own risk".
