Nutrition makes a difference in cocaine abusers


With drugs saturating our youth culture, increased aggression associated with such drugs as cocaine has become more common. The idea that diet may make the difference between aggressive, violent cocaine users and non-violent users was recently tested. What they found was that on admission and testing at the controlled testing unit, the violent cocaine users and significantly lower N-3 fatty acid levels, especially DHA, than the non-violent drug users. Unfortunately, they did not test to see if supplementation with DHA would reduce aggression in individuals.

Because frequent drug users, especially cocaine addicts, have such poor diets, one would expect a high degree of N-3 deficiency in some. Other studies have shown deficiencies in a multitude of vitamins, especially B vitamins, also increased violence, suicide, and aggression.
