Over 1000 juvenile deliquents showed a 44% drop in anti-social behaviour when put on a low sugar diet. So why is the government completely ignoring what we are feeding our children?
The supplements given in this study provided little more than the [RDA] of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids; they were not the mega-doses often used in nutritional studies. Yet the results were staggering. Prisoners given supplements for four consecutive months committed an average of 26 per cent fewer violations compared to the preceding period. For serious breaches of conduct, particularly the use of violence, the number of violations decreased 37 per cent. Those given placebos showed no marked change in behavior.
