Mad at your spouse? Low blood sugar to blame (Cached) 16.4.2014 Asian Age: Newsmaker
Angry at your spouse? Have a snack before you snap! Lower levels of blood sugar may make married people angrier and more aggressive towards their spouses, a new study has found. Researchers found that people who had generally lower levels of glucose were willing to blast their spouses with unpleasant noises at a higher volume and for a longer time than those who had higher glucose levels. The study shows that hunger caused by low levels of blood glucose may play a role in marital arguments, confrontations and possibly even some domestic violence, said Brad Bushman, lead author of the study from the Ohio State University. Blood glucose levels can be brought up most quickly by eating carbohydrates or sugary foods. “People can relate to this idea that when they get hungry, they get cranky,” Bushman said. It even has a slang term: “hangry” (hungry + angry), researchers said. “We found that being hangry can affect our behaviour in a bad way, even in our most intimate relationships,” he said.
