Does Diet Make Us Violent?

“Belly full, happy heart”, as the saying goes. And, it seems to be true. Taking care of the figure may cause moodiness, anxiety, irritability and even stress, aggression and violence.

According to several studies, it has shown that following a strict healthy diet severely alters our mood. For example, a person choosing an apple instead of a candy bar, rather sees a violent film rather than a more tranquil movie.

Those involved in this research are David Gal of Northwestern University in Chicago and Wendy Liu of the University of California. They said that they are trying to determine the relationship between self-control and a person who exercises his power to all kinds of violent behavior.

“The results show that self-control makes people behave aggressively with each other, tending easily to irritability and nonsense anger”, they said.

The conclusion? The study finds that the excesses are never good. Eating a healthy and balanced diet is important for our health, but that does not mean we should deprive ourselves from eating what we like. And if chocolate makes us happy, why avoid it, without abusing?

If you want to know more, this study is published in the Journal of Consumer Research.
