Cornell study finds children who eat chicken on the bone are more aggressive
upi ^ | April 30, 2014 | Evan Bleier

ITHACA, N.Y.,Researchers at Cornell University conducted a study about biting versus chewing habits in children and found that kids who eat chicken on the bone are more likely to disobey adults and be aggressive.

The study, which was published in Eating Behaviors, found that children were “twice as likely to disobey adults and twice as aggressive toward other kids” when eating food they had to hold and bite.

Researches found that children were more docile when eating cut-up pieces of food, results which would seem to indicate that there is a connection between having to use teeth to eat and aggressive behavior.

Not everyone agrees with the study’s findings.

“I think people have been eating chicken wings, chicken drumsticks for a millennia and I don’t think it’s made them any more aggressive than they otherwise would have been,” clinical psychologist Dr. Brian Russell told Fox News.

The children that the researchers studied were between the ages of 6 and 10.

I chewed the bones.
Took their little ends right off.

Alright, put down that chicken and slowly back away.

Put that fork, tines-down on the floor as well.

They’re not more aggressive, they’re less subdued by all the phytoestrogens in those soy-infused, rendered chicken sludge “nuggets.”

Chicken, ribs, and corn on the cobb with a chaser shot of tequilla must be Charles Manson’s childhood diet.

Chicken wings were 3 pounds for a dollar when I was a kid. We used them in sauce. The meat fell off the bone.

Eating the neck meat (which amounts to about a tablespoon of chicken)...now that was an act of aggression.

Makes ‘em more aggressive? Good! I’m going to give our seven-year-olds all the chicken legs they can handle, then. We need to raise a generation of brave, back-talking, intelligent kids to push back all this cr*p that’s come down the pike in the last fifty years.

Another one of these stupid “studies.” Even more stupid are the conclusions that people draw from them.

They always get it backwards.

Obviously, the more aggressive kid is the one who rips into the chicken with his teeth, and the less aggressive one cuts it up into small pieces and doesn’t snort or burp.

Who paid for this “study?”

I don’t know which is stranger, getting a generous research grant to study this topic, or getting it published in a scientific journal.

Our of curiosity, I looked up the journal:

WTF, who thinks this crap up?

This is one of those studies that is so stupid from the outset that you know its only being done because of the ‘researchers’ agenda.

Just as clear is what the findings of the study will be, before it ever starts.

I had mouth watering special fried chicken strips with garlic dip today. You make your order and they give you your drinks and a square disk that looks like a coaster. I had my soda on it, then suddenly it stated beeping and flashing lights - I almost was going to toss it out the door thinking it was going to blow up.

I took a closer look at it and finally figured out it was signalling that my order was ready.

What a crock of good money poured into a hole-growing up in the country, we had chickens, cattle, guineas-even a few hogs-all free range, and we ate them freshly slaughtered-we didn’t run out and commit mayhem, either.

I barter or buy fresh chicken and other fresh meat like everyone else here-this isn’t exactly a high-class place, and the sheriff never gets called here for any violence-we are strange...

“Eating the neck meat (which amounts to about a tablespoon of chicken)...now that was an act of aggression.”

Doesn’t that depend on whether the chicken was dead or alive before the neck was eaten?
