Diet and Behaviour a Multi Disciplinary Evaluation


Beliefs about the effects of food on behavior have existed for ages, but systematic research studies in this field have been initiated only in the recent past. In many ancient cultures mention has been made about the magical qualities of certain foods which bestow special powers such as strength and courage.
