Sugar anger

May 16, 2014

sugar lips

Would you believe a simple sugar treat could bring peace to a stormy relationship? A team of American researchers is saying just that.

Scientists gave couples voodoo dolls and asked them to pin the doll whenever they got mad at their spouse. After a few weeks of doing that at home, the couples came into the lab, to test long known connection between blood sugar and aggressive behavior. It turned out the ones with low blood sugar were more eager to stick pins into dolls.

Glucose in our blood is converted into neurotransmitters that provide energy for brain processes. Low sugar levels apparently undermine self-control, so spouses with insufficient energy could not tame unwanted impulse. At last hanger, a lethal combination of hunger and anger has been scientifically proven.
