FAST FOOD CAN CAUSE ROAD RAGE!
A group of professors, scientists and other intellectuals at at the University of California at San Diego conducting a controlled study of a large group of volunteers found results that impacted statistics and noted significant increases in hostile behaviour which was a direct result of consuming fast foods. Aggression levels were elevated in the subjects whose diets were primarily fast foods.
Coffee drinkers and smokers were also targeted and the results revealed an apparent connection between levels of trans-fatty acids in their diets and behaviour. The mechanism for the effects is thought to stem from the ability of trans-fats to block or possibly inhibit the body’s production of DHEA, a long chain fatty acid that is known to control mood and act as a natural anti-depressant.
