A recent study

 One of the most important articles recently published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, July 2002: 181:22-8, was that by C B Gesch et al on the Influence of Supplementary Vitamins, Minerals and Essetnial Fatty Acids on the Anti-social Behaviour of Young Adult Prisoners. Randomised, Placebo-controlled Trial.

The researchers in the Laboratory of Physiology at Oxford University aimed to test if physiologically adequate intakes of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids cause a reduction in anto-social behaviour. 'An experimental double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised trial of nutritional supplements on 231 young adult prisoners, comparing disciplinary offences before and during supplementation' was set up.  The conclusions of the trial were that 'anti-social behaviours in prisons, including violence, are reduced by vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids with similar implications for those eating poor diets in the Community.'
