Pumpkin Celebration

The holidays can cause people go overboard, whether it is Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July or Halloween. Candies contain food dyes that affect the consumers’ behaviors according to The Center for Science Interest. Research done in the United States, Canada, England and Australia state that the behaviors that have been affecting people are attention deficits, irritability, restlessness, sleep disturbance, aggression and hyperactivity. Sugar is the essential cause of the hangover, so how can we prevent ourselves from catching it?

There are ways to prevent a hangover the next day. Rather than becoming hyperactive by stuffing your empty stomach with sugar, a suggestion would be to eat before trick or treating. Another way to limit the amount of consumed candy per day is to be distracted from the candies and eat healthy foods that are easily obtained from local grocery stores. Halloween is an enjoyable holiday because of the candy, but we must also have self control.
