VITAMINS AND HEALTHY DIET QUELL BULLIES
We do not diagnose disease or recommend a dietary supplement for the treatment of disease. You should share this information with your physician who can determine what nutrition, disease and injury treatment regimen is best for you. You can search this site or the web for topics of interest that I may have written (use Dr Simone and topic).

Lawrenceville, NJ (Dr Charles Simone) – The human brain consumes about 20% of all the calories taken each day. The brain does not function well if there are few calories in the diet and if the diet lacks proper vitamin intake. This could lead to poor impulse control and even bullying as shown in the study from Saint Louis University using data from 150,000 children studied by the World Health Organization in 40 different countries. High fat foods, junk food, and lack of vitamins and minerals as well as fruits and vegetables lead to a higher risk of bullying. Children who didn’t eat breakfast and children who were hungry at night also had a higher risk for becoming a bully or being a victim of bullying.
Although the United States is a wealthy nation, many of our children are at risk of eating a poor diet – high fat, high sodium, low fiber, and low intake of vitamins and minerals.
Other studies that we have cited (by Schoenthaler) in my first book, Cancer and Nutrition, show that 100% of daily vitamins quell bullies. These studies were done in schools and also in incarcerated children.
Of course there are many other risk factors linked to bullying like parent-child relationships, neighborhood safety, etc. But we can control diet and vitamin intake.
