Oh the flaming brain damage. that "studies" sometimes.

just a short one boys and girls..

There was this "study" by Cornell University that "finds" that kids who hold with their hands and eat food on the bone,cob etc, iow rending with their front teeth...are more aggressive than those that use utensils to cut up and chew their food. 

Ahh so kids that "Writing in the journal Eating Behaviors, lead author Brian Wansink, professor and director of the Cornell Food and Brand Lab, and colleagues describe how they found kids aged 6 to 10 were much rowdier when given foods they had to bite with their front teeth - such as corn on the cob, drumsticks and whole apples - than when these foods had been cut up."

Are you serious? who the fuck comes up with this shit? and how much money did this "study" cost? Arrrgh!! *headdesk*

Hmm...I can do both, I love love love corn on the cob, chicken wings, fried chicken, celery sticks, beef jerky, tacos, gyros,  couple other foods that fall in the "eat with your hands and rend with your front teeth" category. Hmm dost this make me a homicidal maniac?  Well I must be according to this study. In case that last bit wasn't clear that was scorn and scathing contempt, you were detecting in my text voice there. 

No as a matter of fact I DON'T buy this line of bullshit.  What makes children rowdy is a lack of parenting and discipline.  Even thorough application of  both sometimes isn't sufficient with a sufficiently independent child.  What they eat and how they eat, has fuck all to do with behavior. Outside of insane amounts of sugar that leads to kids bouncing off the walls.

 "Prof. Wansink says the bottom line of their study is if you want to sit down to "a nice quiet, relaxing meal with your kids, cut up their food." *snort* hahahaha...good thing I wasn't eating when I read that bit or someone might owe me a new keyboard.   Yes cut up the food and make it easier and more manageable for them to play with it with their fingers and give them more ammo for the ensuing food fight.....

*rubs head*

Remember TANSTAAFL and...

I now return you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.
