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 studys findings.
I think people have been eating chicken wings, chicken drumsticks for a millennia and I dont think its 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.
Ithaca’s the city of evil. Or so I’ve heard.
I chewed the bones.
Took their little ends right off.
Must make me a serial killer?
Getty image, try another.
Apparently da prezzy was taught to eat his chicken longitudinally.
Who paid for this? As if it even needs to be asked.
My kid who eats ribs can still kick your boney chicken eating kid’s a$$.
. . . eating makes us aggressive. . . . just depends on how far you want to carry the idiocy
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.
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.
Better that than some of pussies that are being turned out these days
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 sure hope this “study” wasn’t done with federal tax dollars.
