A study of 1,000 children on Mauritius by the University of Southern California has found that increasing levels of malnutrition during childhood was linked to increased anti-social behavior later in life. Poor diet can also lead to lower IQ. The study results show that insufficient zinc, iron, vitamin B and protein in the first 3 years of a child’s life led to behavioral problems later on. However, other doctors believe that diet may play only a small role and genetics and environment played the bigger role in social behavior.
