Have you ever gotten angry when you've gone without food for a long time? If you have, you are suffering from a term which is a mix between hungry and angry, known as hangry. There is an explanation for this uncontrollable reaction.

People get hangry because there is a lack of glucose in the bloodstream which is caused by having not enough food. While other body organs use different nutrients, the brain relies only on glucose.

It is also the same hormones that makes you fight when faced with a dangerous situation.
