Study shows that if your kid was eating sweets on a daily basis then he will grow up to be a violent person!!!... haha this is crazy... should we ban sweets now? this is not ok!!!!

If we expand the current growth of odd logic, I already have a plan!

We should ban roses, why, because:

1) They have thorns, can be harmful to children.

2) They may attract bees, which will sting a person.

3) Youtube sex injuries, and you'll find other reasons why they should be banned.

We cannot coexist with roses, and they must be banned, they do so much harm.

Sarcasm over.

We shouldn't ban sweets, but do what we do with STD classes in school.

Show children morbidly obese people, and ask them if that's their goal in life!

This is proven by the Twinkie Defense & temporary insanity resulting from slamming high quantities of sugar laced products; such as in Dan Whites case when he killed Harvey Milk & some other SF official.

Link-a-Roni (San Francisco Treat)

US Courts have recognized this as a viable defense.

I don't know... I've always considered using the Capt'n Crunch defense if ever needed. I have scars on the roof of my mouth to prove it.

Funny OP

Scary what lawyers can do with our legal system.

All I have to say is..

Leave it to the british to blame chocolate for violence.

I wonder if they ever thought that maybe people are just.. people..

But I can see the PSAs now.

"This is your life without chocolate" -Picture of an Ivy League University student on his way to becoming a doctor.

"This is your life, on chocolate" -Video of a kid with a green mohawk wearing a studded leather jacket and beating a store clerk with a bat.-

"For the sake of society, don't consume chocolate."

The research, the latest which correlates eating flavonoid-rich foods with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease(1), was presented in February at the American Association for the Advancement of Science's (AAAS) annual meeting in Boston. One study found that a substance in cocoa helps the body process nitric oxide (NO), a compound critical for healthy blood flow and blood pressure. Another study showed that flavonols in cocoa prevent fat-like substances in the bloodstream from oxidizing and clogging the arteries, and make blood platelets less likely to stick together and cause clots. Flavonoids are plant compounds with potent antioxidant properties; so far, scientists have found more than 4,000 kinds. Cocoa beans contain large quantities of flavonoids, and so do red wine, tea, cranberries, peanuts, strawberries, apples and many other fruits and vegetables.(2) The flavonoids in chocolate are called flavonols.

Yeah This study makes sense

Sounds like exactly the way TPTB want my kids...

Weak of Heart and Unwilling to Fight

I suppose in a few years kids wont have Real Cocoa but rather be fed ASPARTAME

Although its name sounds tame, this deadly neurotoxin is anything but. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener (over 200 times sweeter than sugar) made by the Monsanto Corporation and marketed as "Nutrasweet," "Equal," "Spoonful" and countless other trade names. Although aspartame is added to over 9,000 food products, it is not fit for human consumption! This toxic poison changes into formaldehyde in the body and has been linked to migraines, seizures, vision loss and symptoms relating to lupus, Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and other health destroying conditions (even Gulf War Syndrome). Learn more information about this crime against our health. Aspartame - Artificial Diet Sweetener Unhealthy & Makes You Fat! Because Monsanto's artificial sweetener aspartame (sold as "Nutrasweet," "Equal," and "Spoonful") is over 200 times sweeter than sugar, it's a common ingredient found in "diet" foods and has become a sweetening staple for dieters. Besides being a deadly poison (see page 42), aspartame actually contributes to weight gain by causing a craving for carbohydrates. A study of 80,000 women by the American Cancer Society found that those who used this neurotoxic "diet" sweetener actually gained more weight than those who didn't use aspartame products.

These little studies bought and paid for By soulless subsidiaries of Monsanto don't fool me for one minute.

I Expect my children to be fed lots of real Chocolate this Halloween.

How ridiculous! All kids love sweets, end of story.

I don't think anyone knows how kids will turn out - some kids brought up by loving parents end up as murderers and abusers, and some kids with a terrible childhood end up as great adults.

I don't really understand how they are establishing the causality in that study.

It seems like they took a group of criminals, and then asked if they used to eat sweets daily at 10.

That would have been years ago, when a LOT of people ate a lot of sweets. It is not at all unusual for kids to eat daily sweets in the 80s or 90's. Also, sweets could be a socio-economic indicator. A poor unsupervised kid in a disadvantaged situation might have found it easier to get a candy bar than have a mom cook them a healthy afterschool snack!

That does not mean that the sweets caused the violence. How could they say that?

It could be the indulgence of the parents, or the impulse control of the criminals.

I dunno, I just don't get it. Did the even have a control group?

they keep finding new and new things to blame things on because of bad parenting, the kids are getting worse and worse... so would this tell us that most kids these days are being raised in Willy Wonkas warehouses?

I for one prove that wrong period. I have been passive all my life.

Stats like these are just there to label any one they want, how ever they want.

I don't know about this study, but some better get me a donut and DANG TWIX or I am gonna have to whip some A**!

This is absurd. This is just another government attempt at controlling behavior. They did the same thing with smoking. Albeit, smoking harms other folks.

Good heavens, what a bunch of BS! Our whole family has a sweet tooth and none of us are violent. In fact, we're all pretty laid back. The kids are all, not only very smart, but very good kids. Never gave their parents a lick of trouble!

These a-holes just don't quit, do they?
