Food Aggression in Humans
According to the findings, eating too much processed junk food can cause “aggression, irritation, and even aggressive tendencies.” According to Dr. Ramsey, nutritional deficiencies are a significant contributor to abnormal behavior.
A dog that exhibits food aggression will become extremely defensive when eating and will use threats to shoo people away. It may be aimed towards people, other animals, or a combination of the two. Treats may also be involved in the activity. Three levels of food aggressiveness exist: The dog growls mildly and may even flash its teeth. Moderate: When approached, the dog snaps or lunges. The dog bites severely.
Prevalence of food aggression in humans
Food aggression can range from mild to severe and includes aggressive actions like growling, lunging, snapping, or biting. In some cases, the food-aggressive behavior is selective and may only be triggered by certain types of food. For example, a dog may only react to mobile food, while others may only act aggressively when their food bowl is empty. However, the exact cause of this behavior is unknown.
It is believed that glucose metabolism problems may trigger aggressive behaviors. Low blood sugar levels have increased anger, hostility, and other aggressive behavior. Fortunately, there are methods to reduce the risk of falling blood glucose levels and impulsively displaying aggressive behaviors. A regular eating regimen is one way to reduce blood sugar levels and avoid impulsive violent behavior.
There are various treatment options for food aggression in humans. These include medications and therapy. Primarily, treatment for aggression is based on the underlying cause. A therapist can determine the contributing factors and recommend various therapy approaches. Often, medications can be an effective treatment option, but there are times when they may not be enough.
Impact on human safety
The impact of food aggression on human safety is a significant issue worldwide. Global rates of famine and hunger have risen over the past three years. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has further exacerbated these issues. Therefore, stopping any military attack on Ukraine is critical to ensure future food security.
