Behavior and the Influences of Nutrition
A 7 page research paper that looks at this topic. There is an old saying that "You are what you eat," which refers, of course, that it is what we consume that provides the nutritional building blocks for the body. Considering the truth of this statement, a corollary would necessarily follow that what we eat, and therefore how the body and brain are constructed, necessarily affects the way we act. Researchers are, therefore, exploring the various ways in which nutrition impacts behavior. This body of data indicates that nutrition affects behavior in a profound manner. The writer particularly focuses on studies that examine the effect of nutrition on childhood development and behavior. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
