Kids who eat chocolate and other sweets on a regular basis growing up are more likely to be convicted of a violent crime by the age of 34, new research suggests.

A study by Britain’s Cardiff University found that 69 percent of the children who were allowed to eat candy every day, grew up to be violent offenders versus the 42 percent who were not given sweets.

Researchers suggested the link may be the result of the children not having learned to delay gratification. Other experts also believe that more “difficult” children might also be given more treats by their parents. (BBC)
