Junk Food and Violence Linked by Study

Finally - research on British and US offenders suggest that nutrition may play a role in aggressive behaviour. Omega-3 fatty acids are helping folks to become more balanced and sane.

They say:
....the new research calls into question the very basis of criminal justice and the notion of culpability. It suggests that individuals may not always be responsible for their aggression. Taken together with a study in a high-security prison for young offenders in the UK, it shows that violent behaviour may be attributable at least in part to nutritional deficiencies.

A 37% decrease in violent offences has been seen in people who were given multivitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.

Have a look at the full article it is very interesting.
