A new study from The Ohio State University finds spouses with low blood sugar--- an indication of hunger,, are more likely to lash out.
Researchers gave each study participant a Voo Doo Doll that represented their spouse-- they found people with lower blood sugar levels stuck more pins in their dolls and were more likely to pick fights, even if the couple had what they considered to be a good relationship.
