When you hear the word bbQ, you probably think of the ubiquitous barbecue joint, but if you’re a foodie, you might be thinking of a different kind of barbecue: the home-cooked meal.
This month, researchers have found that home-cooking is a major predictor of a person’s likelihood of committing a home-based murder.
The findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
“Home cooking has been shown to have significant protective effects against violent offending,” lead author Dr David Molloy, a lecturer in criminology at King’s College London, told New Scientist.
“The association between home cooking and murder has been well documented.”
“It was interesting to find that home cooking had a greater protective effect on violent offending than was smoking or drinking.
We think that’s probably because home cooking is relatively easy to prepare and it’s cheaper.”
The researchers found that men who had done at least 10 home-related violent offences in the previous 12 months were 10 times more likely to commit a home violence murder.
In a similar study in 2015, the same team found that a person who had been involved in at least one home-violence murder was three times more than a person with no home-level offending.
“When we look at the relationship between home-Cooking and homicide, it’s clear that home cooks have a lower risk of homicide than the general population,” said lead author Professor Richard Dyer, of the School of Social Work and Health Sciences at University College London.
“That’s not surprising, because we know that homecooking lowers the risk of violence in the community.”
What is surprising is that home Cooking was a stronger predictor of violent offending in the home of a female offender.
“Home cooking has also been shown in other studies to have a protective effect against alcohol misuse.
“It’s possible that home Cooking has protective effects because it’s a low-risk lifestyle that reduces the likelihood of violence. “
We were interested to find out whether home cooking was protective against violent crime in this cohort,” said co-author Dr Michael McQuade, from the University of St Andrews, UK.
It’s also interesting to note that this protective effect of home cooking on violent crime is independent of whether the offender was male or female.” “
However, this research is the first to show that home cookings are associated with lower risk.
It’s also interesting to note that this protective effect of home cooking on violent crime is independent of whether the offender was male or female.”
Home cooks and the murder rate The researchers analysed data from the UK’s National Homicide Recording System, which tracks deaths in the country’s households.
They also looked at data from a national database of murder cases.
The researchers used the same approach to examine how the risk factors were related to the rate of home-induced homicide.
“Using the UK National Homicides Database, we compared home cooking to violent offending and homicide in each of the four measures of violent offence,” said Dyer.
“For home-derived homicide, we also compared the number of offenders convicted to the number who were convicted for violent offences.”
“The associations were statistically significant for both the home cooking factor and the homicide rate for violent offenders, and for the home crime factor.
What the researchers found was that violent offenders were more likely than non-violent offenders to have done at or near home-the main offender type for home-crime victims. “
In particular, we did not find any significant associations between the home cook factor and violent offending rates, but there were statistically significantly positive associations for home crime and home-caused homicides for violent offender and female offenders.”
What the researchers found was that violent offenders were more likely than non-violent offenders to have done at or near home-the main offender type for home-crime victims.
“There was a significant association between violent offending for both home- and non-home-related murder, and home cooking for home murder,” Dyer told New Science.
What’s more, the researchers also found a protective association between the number and type of home fires. “
Homelessness is a key risk factor for home crimes, so it is possible that this might explain the association between Home Cooking and home violence.”
What’s more, the researchers also found a protective association between the number and type of home fires.
“Firearms were the most common type of offending in our home-specific study, with a significant risk for homicide, but the association was not significant for other types of violent crime,” Dyr said.
“Interestingly, home-fire incidents were also associated with a higher risk for both violent and property crimes.”
What to do about home-prepared crime There are a number of strategies to help reduce home-mediated violent crime, such as locking down your home, locking down the area, locking up your pets, or having an electronic lock on your doors.
But the researchers said that there were many things you can do to help keep your
