If you feel irritated and even angry before your meal time, it means you are experiencing being ‘hangry‘.
A new term for an old phenomenon was found by scientists, who believe we are getting irritated because of a sharp drop of glucose levels in our blood due to hunger.
Thus we are likely to snap or tell off to those who are around us.
Speaking scientifically to fight hunger-related stress our body releases a chemical called neuropeptide Y. It contributes to being aggressive.
Being ‘hangry‘ is not just a phenomenon. It can seriously affect your life and relationships. A study conducted by the New Scientist Magazine suggests that judges might offer stricter sentences to offenders some time shortly before lunch.
However conflicting evidence suggests “harsher sentences may in fact be more likely towards the end of the morning because judges schedule simpler cases for this time.
“More complicated, lengthier cases carry a risk of running over into their lunch break.”
So make sure you take your meals on time!
