Abstract

Background & aims: Aggressive behavior (AB) progress to a major concern among adolescents. The present study is designed to assess possible association between dietary intake of macronutrient, some micronutrient, cholesterol, and antioxidants with AB in adolescent girls, from age 9-13 years old. Materials and methods: In the case-control study, a total 212 primary school girls between 9 and 13 years of age were divided into two groups (106 with AB and 106 healthy) base on aggression score of the Buss-Perry questionnaire. A 147-item food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) was used to evaluate nutritional intake of subjects. Independent t-test and Mann-Whitney test was used to compare quantitative variables between the two groups according to the normality of data distribution. Chi-square test was used to compare categorical variables between case and control groups. Logistic regression models were used to assess possible association of nutrients intake with AB. Results: The consumption of more simple carbohydrate odds ratios (OR): 14.53, confidence interval (CI): (13.23, 17.56) total fat OR: 13.31, CI: (8.50, 16.47), SFAs OR: 11.831, CI: (8.94, 15.36), TFAs OR: 9.10, CI: (6.87, 10.12), and caffeine OR: 16.26, CI: (14.53, 17.88) significantly increase the occurrence of aggressive behaviors. Conversely, intake of fiber OR: 0.997, CI: (0.012, 0.999), W3 OR: 0.991, CI: (0.040, 0.999), and vitamin K OR: 0.994, CI: (0.990, 0.999) were marginal associated with reduced odds of AB. Conclusions: The intake of caffeine, simple carbohydrate, total fat, SFAs, TFAs, could increase the occurrence of AB. (C) 2021 European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism.
