Hunger can shrink your heart and negatively effect your brain and vital organs.

We are all familiar with the concept of hunger. We miss breakfast, maybe lunch, don’t have time to grab a snack, whatever the case – we feel hunger pangs in our body and are plagued by a lack of concentration and mental stability.
