Diet Is Linked to Bad Behavior

After analyzing the development of more than 1,000 children on Mauritius, an island off the coast of Africa, researchers from the University of Southern California concluded that the more malnourished the children were in their first three years, the greater their anti-social behavior later on. Report co-author Adrian Raine told the BBC that parents could prevent their children from developing bad behavior by ensuring they eat healthier foods. "There's more to anti-social behavior than nutrition, but we argue that it is an important missing link."
