NCAHF Position Paper on Diet and Criminal Behavior The National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) believes that misinformation is presently being used to exploit some popular beliefs that are not factual. We therefore endorse the following statements:
  • Nutritionally adequate and acceptable diets should be available for all institutionalized individuals. Nutritional adequacy must be determined on the basis of accepted dietary principles. Valid evidence is lacking to support the claim that diet is an important determinant in the development of violence and criminal behavior. Valid evidence is lacking to support the hypothesis that reactive hypoglycemia is a common cause of violent behavior. Inappropriate dietary treatment based on unfounded beliefs about the relationships between diet and criminal behavior can have harmful effects.
    • It can result in nutritional deficiencies and/or excesses. It can detract from efforts toward identification of effective treatment and prevention of the true causes of aberrant behavior. It can lead to the dangerous belief that diet, rather than the individual, has control over and responsibility for his/her behavior.

    5. Criminal Brain
    Otherwise, the justice and penal systems will continue burgeoning growthwithout addressing potential root causes of criminal behavior.

    A significant and compelling body of scientific literature is accumulating suggesting that the concept of a "criminal brain" is viable. Mounting research indicates that deficiencies in the frontal or pre-frontal regions of the brain often correlate with various forms of violence and impulsivity that can lead to criminal acts. Deficiencies in other brain areas play a role in contributing to behaviors that are categorized as "criminal." Memory problems, perceptual disorders, and emotional difficulties all may contribute to behaviors that cannot be adequately controlled and that lead to socially unacceptable behaviors. Of course, much research in relating brain conditions and behaviors is correlational. These studies do not prove causal relationships. Certainly, all people with frontal lobe damage are not violent or criminal. And, it is likely that some people with normal frontal lobes do, indeed, exhibit criminal behavior. The thrust of correlational research is that it suggests relationships and tendencies. The research may not tell the whole picture, but it reasonably tells a significant part of it. Researchers at the University of Southern California have been studying the size of the pre-frontal lobes and the tendency for that variable to correlate with criminal behavior. Their findings indicate that men who are most prone to rage and violence have significant deficiencies in the pre-frontal lobes, the brain region that enables most people to learn moral sensibilities and exercise self-restraint.

    : I believe those people who don't know how to express themselves in life are very vulnerable on taking on criminal behaviors because our society calls those individuals who act out our primitive nature a criminal. People who can't follow established orders, clumsy, disorganized, who are rebels in life are on the track of criminal patterns. Education, mannerism, religion, art and music are the clothes we're expected to buy and wear to cover our nakedness and shame. And those who convince others that they're actually sheeps and not a wild beast, are called gentlemen and intellectuals, but they're no different from individuals like Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, and others who committed acts of inhumane activities because they're victims of human nature. -> My perspective on criminal behaviors.

    : It did not take long, as a probation officer, for me to realize that some people are beyond help. I have a degree in biology, and a strong interest in this topic. There are biological causes for some deviant/criminal behavior, that when influenced environmental, manifest themselves quite violently. Most research seems to be in the area of testosterone and serotonin levels. I am finally in graduate school and hope to learn alot more. Please always consider the biological causes of criminal behavior-if a child does not develop a conscience by the age of five or so-he/she will not have one-they are not crying out for help-they are looking only to serve themselves! I have just recently begun my study on the causes of criminal behaviour however what has been made very clear thus far is that biological factors do play a very important role in this development. I have come across numerous studies done in Northern Ireland which show that this point is infact true. In these studies twins were seperated at birth, they were both placed into families with no criminal backround yet still showed extreme criminal behaviour. There are many more instances which also show just how apparent biological factors are. This is my opinion on the matter.

    The goal of research is the construction of theories or models that allow for a better understanding of criminal behavior that permit the development of strategies to address problems of crime

    Cities show less a rise in crime than rural areas or small cities as city light would minimize the impact of lunar light.

    A good theory provides relatively complete understanding, and it is supported by observations and stands up to continued scrutiny.

    Robert James Bidinotto
    Criminal Justice? The Legal System Versus Individual Responsibility, edited by Mr. Bidinotto and published by FEE. Since 1960, per capita crime rates have more than tripled, while violent crime rates have nearly quintupled. By any measure, we live in a nation much less safe than that in which our parents grew up. This simply cries out for an explanation. What in our modem society could possibly account for the sudden and explosive growth in force, fraud, and coercion? Liberals typically posit socio-economic factors, such as poverty. Yet how can we attribute the rising tide of violence to rising poverty, when the periods of fastest crime growth have been during times of rapidly rising American wealth? This popular "explanation" also fails on comparative grounds. Why is the richest nation on earth experiencing increases in predatory behavior that vastly exceed crime rates in much poorer nations? Why now, at a time of relative abundance and wealth, instead of during impoverished times past say, during our Great Depression? And why after decades of dumping trillions of dollars into programs to eradicate privation, hunger, illiteracy, insecurity, disease, homelessness-the alleged "root causes" of crime?

    ADHD Causes and Treatments
    ADHD Look-Alikes ADHD Symptoms Parenting Tips ADHD Home Causes of ADHD: ADHD is one of the best researched disorders in medicine, yet the exact causes of ADHD remain unclear. Some experts believe a combination of factors are responsible for the development of this disorder. Some of the possible causes of ADHD are listed below: Differences in the Brain:
    Advanced imaging techniques have detected differences in the brains of ADHD children compared to those of non-ADHD children. Research has suggested that ADHD is a disorder of the right side of the brain. One specific area on the right side, the prefrontal cortex, may be particularly important in understanding ADHD. The prefrontal cortex is thought to be the brain's command center. It regulates the brain's ability to inhibit responses. A number of imaging studies has indicated that the prefrontal cortex of the brain in ADHD may be underactive in comparison with those without ADHD. Neurotransmitters:
    Many neurotransmitters affect mental and emotional functioning and may play a role in the ADHD. Levels of dopamine, which helps regulate concentration, attention, and inhibition, might be abnormal in the brains of those with ADHD according to some studies. Deficiencies in norepinephrine, another brain chemical that is involved in the fight or flight response, may also be critical in ADHD.

    ... Airline Pilot Dozes With Inspector Aboard Norfolk, Va. (AP) - A federal judge on Monday grounded a Florida man after the man's alleged drunken, unruly behavior caused a Southwest Airlines plane bound from Florida to New York to make an unscheduled landing in Norfolk on Saturday.
    The passenger, Ulises Baca Ariza, 44, of Miami, is accused of raising his arm to a flight attendant during the trip, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court.
    Ariza was arrested by airport police and members of the Terrorism Task Force and charged with interfering with flight crew members, an offense that carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison.

    NORFOLK, Va. A Florida man charged in Virginia with taking a swing at a flight attendant during a flight to New York was ordered by a federal judge Monday to stay off planes and refrain from excessive drinking. The passenger, Ulises Baca Ariza, 44, of Miami, was arrested Saturday and charged with interfering with flight crew members, an offense that carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison. In court Monday, Judge James E. Bradberry also set bond at $5,000 bond for Ariza. Ariza, who is employed by a Miami steel company, and a group of co-workers heading to a job in New York boarded a Southwest Flight at Fort Lauderdale on Saturday bound for Long Island. At least one passenger said Ariza "was very drunk" when he got on the plane, according to the complaint.
