These researchers should demand their money back from whatever schools gave them degrees.
It is called poor parenting and candy/treats only reinforce the bad behavior. The treats themselves have nothing to do with it.
What about wearing diapers? Did you know that 100% of all killers and rapists once wore them?? 100% correlation!!!!
Corn Flakes are just mashed up bits of gypsum like corn stuck together with a liquid sugar cement. Even if it isn’t in your face sweet its still mostly that liquified sugar. I used to eat lots of different types and most cereal flakes are created that way. These days I have switched to an old boy scout favourite up here in Canada called Red River cereal (not sure if it is available in the US or not) and it is very healthy with no sugar but I do add some maple syrup for flavour.
I suppose prosecutors all ate sauerkraut as children
Sugar-coated utrajunk science.
Would you believe there was a recipe bouncing around in the 70’s for “sauerkraut chocolate cake.” You just mixed the kraut in with the cake mix and some eggs and baked, and it was touted as the most wonderful thing. My mother tried it, and I am convinced the recipe was a prank. Cherries fill out a chocolate cake nicely — but the other stuff? Phew and yuck!
And the first thing you learn in either Psychology or Statistics is that Correlational Studies CANNOT be used to establish cause-effect relationships.
True. Even if the correlation is valid, i.e., repeatable, representative of a true correlation, it doesn’t mean cause and effect. The first thing that occured to me was that parents who are lazy and indulgent get poor results.
It’s what’s known in statistics as colinearity. Many traits may be associated.
Yes... like it completely fails to examine the “spoiled-child” hypothesis.
Is said candy stolen?
And every dead person has eaten a carrot.
Good thing we weren’t really allowed to eat candy children and I never cared for sugar soda, chocolate(especially dark) and candy in general.
Never liked cake but, would eat the frosting. Now I don’t care for either.
Use to like Lemon cake but rarely touch it.
I wonder what happens as you get older that things just start getting eliminated for no particular reason?
The real problem is those PEZ Heads!
They’re lawyers, so they probably ate kittens and puppies.
How about pizza?
Bit this childhood candy eater is busy at home eating candy as an adult. Too lazy and too caught up in making sure the spray whipped cream covers the white chocolate cookie to find time to rob, steal, or cheat. Maybe steal one of my husbands Mike and Ike’s but otherwise . . ..
Me too, but I’m still a little angry....
much better statistics if the hypothesis was “Milk in infancy leads to adult violence”.
Junk science at its finest!
