Trans Fat Linked to Aggression

A new study suggests that eating products high in trans fat leads to hostile and irritable behavior.

According to a new study conducted by researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, there may be a link between the consumption of trans fats—typically found in meat and dairy products such as ground beef, ice cream, and margarine—and aggressive behavior. Examining the diets and behavioral history of 945 adults, researchers found that people’s propensity for aggressiveness and irritability correlated directly to their trans-fat intake—a fact that remained true even after eliminating variables such as age, sex, and ethnicity as possible factors. The study’s findings suggest that, in addition to being physically harmful, consuming trans fats may have psychological and social ramifications as well.
