Just Wondering: Did Sugary Foods Such As Twinkies Play An Unwitting Role in the Tragic Virginia Tech Shootings?

Filed under: In The News — @ April 20, 2007

Clearly, the horrific shootings at Virginia Tech are weighing heavily on people’s minds this week. So incredibly tragic and agonizingly painful. My heart goes out to those poor families of those 32 students who unnecessarily died.

Of course, I could be completely off base here, but I just can’t help but wonder: What kinds of foods was this hostile, angry, distraught Cho Seung Hui eating on a regular basis before he mercilessly gunned down innocent fellow students?

I certainly mean no disrespect, but this subject is gnawing at me. Think about it. Students at colleges typically eat lots of sugary cereals, as well as chips, candies and refined carbs. What’s more, they often chug down lots of soda.

If you think this is all a stretch, you should know that extensive research shows a link between consuming sugary junk foods and violence or criminal behavior.
