It could prevent major fights between husbands and wives, at least if a new study involving voodoo dolls is right. Psychology researchers monitored the nightly blood sugar levels of 107 married couples for three weeks, asking them to stick pins in a voodoo doll representing their spouses to measure aggression.

The people with the lowest glucose scores pushed twice in general as many pins on average as those with the highest blood sugar levels, the researchers said.
