Why does your tummy growl when you are hungry?

    that was cool, although not something i should have read with a squishy gut. :shock:

    one thing that baffles me is why hunger noises are considered embarrassing? it's not like they smell...

    It's embarrassing if you've just been to eat at someone's house, and THEN it starts! : )

    Nothing worse than going out for dinner at a friend's place and you're still hungry when you leave the table! Oh ... there IS - when your stomach starts making gurgling noises.
