Researchers: Candy can help prevent marital fights

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A quick candy bar may ward off more than just hunger.

According to a newly released study, candy helps prevent fights between husbands and wives.

Researchers studied 107 married couples for three weeks, asking them to stick pins into dolls representing their spouses to measure aggression.

They found the lower the blood sugars, the higher the crankiness, and the more pins were pushed into the dolls.

One researcher calls the mood 'hangry,' a combination of hungry and angry.
