Does music affect the food you order or buy? According to a new study, loud music makes us choose unhealthier foods, while softer music leads to healthier choices. According to researchers this is because the volume of music has a direct impact on our heart rates and stimulation. The study monitored people in a cafĂ© and found that when louder music was playing, 52 percent of customers ordered something unhealthy, compared to 42 percent who ordered unhealthy food when quieter music was playing.  And the number of customers who bought healthy items was higher when the music was softer. Bottom line: Softer music has a calming effect, which makes us think more about the food we buy or order. Loud music increases stimulation and stress, which often leads to people choosing unhealthy food options. (Newsweek
