Diet & Children
Diet and children
Studies done with children, teenagers and prisoners have illustrated that diet has a phenomenal impact on disruptive, aggressive behaviour.
Studies conducted by Professor Bryce-Smith have highlighted that deficiencies in food have had a great impact on individuals.
There has been over half a century of intensive farming methods which has contributed significantly to a slow and steady reduction in the nutrient content of soil and that which is grown in it.
A major loss has been of zinc, a key nutrient for good brain functioning. Professor Bryce-Smith states that the common use of phosphate fertilisers prevents the uptake of zinc from the soil.
