"There are no good studies that say processed meats will cause you to get a headache," says Rosen. But the nitrates and nitrites used as preservatives in hot dogs, bacon, and lunch meats may dilate blood vessels and trigger headaches in some people.

According to the American Headache Society, studies can't tell you what food may trigger your headaches, but many people do have food triggers. The best advice is to keep a food diary, avoid foods that seem to trigger your headaches, stick to a healthy diet, and don't skip meals.
