Daily sweets 'linked to violence'
Children who eat sweets and chocolate every day are more likely to be violent as adults, according to UK researchers.
The Cardiff University study involving 17,500 people is the first into effects of childhood diet on adult violence.
It found 10-year-olds who ate sweets daily were significantly more likely to have a violence conviction by age 34.....
The study was reported in the British Journal of Psychiatry.
There is, of course debate as to whether it is actually the candy is to blame or whether giving children sweets and chocolate regularly may stop them learning how to wait to obtain something they want.
Personally,until more research is completed,I'm going to me more wary when I'm around overweight felons with rotten teeth and bad skin!
