Science: Men with Round Faces Tend to be More Aggressive

Scientists at Brock University, Ontario, Canada, has discovered a link between aggression and men's facial structure: men with round faces tend to be more aggressive!

The male sex hormone testosterone makes faces more circular and now scientists have studied whether this characteristic is also linked to behaviour.

A Canadian team studied 90 ice hockey players and found the rounder the face, the more aggressive the players.

Hmmm, scientific research. I'm always sceptical when it comes to science. This looks like classic junk science to me. The word "tend" makes this research fairly useless. Where are the studies that acknowledge the social, environmental effects in determining a persons predisposition to violence? In some cultures (such as in central America) violence is a way of gaining community respect, round faces have nothing to do with it. This is rubbish science.

I've got a very round face. I can't say I don't have my fair share of testosterone. I had a full beard by the age of seventeen and I'm a devoted gearhead despite my gayness.
