A new study finds eating a diet high in trans fatty acids might be associated with negative and even aggressive behavior.

Foods high in trans fats include baked goods, fried foods and other prepared meals and snacks.

The study is published online in PLoS ONE.

Though it did not find a direct link, it found those negative behaviors included impatience, irritability and aggression.
