The human body is an amazing machine, and every once in a while it will do something to remind you that it’s working hard to keep you alive and well. The stomach growl is one of these reminders. Loud, soft and sometimes for no good reason at all, your growling stomach has a lot to say.
Whether you call it grumbling, rumbling, gurgling or growling, from time to time everybody’s belly chimes in. These noises might sound like they should be coming from a noisy pot of bubbling stew rather than your stomach.
But the big question is, why does it growl in the first place? And why does your stomach seem to growl the moment a room grows quiet?
Your stomach doesn’t have such perfect timing or such a malicious sense of sabotage. But there is a perfectly logical explanation why your stomach sometimes feels the need to be heard.

“When we first heard one explosion we ran to the basement. And then suddenly, boom, boom, boom – countless explosions. I will never forget that sound.”
With a broken hand and shrapnel still lodged in her chest, Sveta, 55, had just survived a multiple rocket attack on her village when I met her in a hospital in Donetsk in eastern Ukraine this week. The attack destroyed her house and forced most of the villagers to leave. Our investigation shows that Ukrainian armed forces are responsible for at least some of the attacks here that have killed civilians.
