Candy Causes Violence in Children

Treats May Not Be So Sweet This Halloween

Halloween may be a tad scarier this year thanks to a new British study. Researchers across the pond have spent the past four decades tracking 10-year-olds' candy intake and found that those who ate the sweet treats on a daily basis were more likely to be arrested for violent offenses than those who didn't. The scientists behind the study say that its results support the belief that those who eat healthily tend to make better behavioral decisions.

Many parents will shake this off denouncing the idea that an innocent little treat like candy could truly not be tied to violent crimes. Will you let a study like this spook you into tightening the pumpkin strings this year?
