EATING MEAT CAUSES AGGRESSION
That is what I have heard from many doctors.
In all actuality, any foods which are Acidic or Acidic Reactive (meat, dairy, sodas, juices, and lack of plain drinking water) can easily cause a pH imballance, resulting in poor mental health (and poor physical health also).

HUMANE SOCIETY www.hsus.org
SERIAL KILLERS & ANIMAL TORTURE
The Humane Society of the United States (www.hsus.org) had a detailed page on Case Studies of Serial Killers and their previous history of animal torture (photos, names, case studies). Admitedly, it was too much for me. That page (www.hsus2.org/firststrike/casestudies/index.html) has been removed, and a newer milder verification of the facts is now at http://www.hsus.org/ace/15866 which now reads as follows.....
Is there any evidence of a connection between animal cruelty and human violence?
Absolutely. Many studies in psychology, sociology, and criminology during the last 25 years have demonstrated that violent offenders frequently have childhood and adolescent histories of serious and repeated animal cruelty. The FBI has recognized the connection since the 1970s, when its analysis of the lives of serial killers suggested that most had killed or tortured animals as children. Other research has shown consistent patterns of animal cruelty among perpetrators of more common forms of violence, including child abuse, spouse abuse, and elder abuse. In fact, the American Psychiatric Association considers animal cruelty one of the diagnostic criteria of conduct disorder.

"It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind."  - Albert Einstein Letter to 'Vegetarian Watch-Tower', 27 December 1930

EATING MEAT CAUSES AGGRESSION
That is what I have heard from many doctors.
.

.
AGGRESSION is the worlds number one Solvable problem.   Albert Einstein (Vegan, Scientist, Genius, Writer on Social Issues), said that the government can not control aggression, that We as Individuals must learn to curb our own aggressions. ("Ideas & Opinions" by Albert Einstein)
.
Doctors advised me years back (raised a meat eater, I had not idea that I could survive without it), that to curb my temper, I should cut back on my Red Meats, then later they re-advised me to cut back on all meats.
.
Eating Meat results in Aggression, Sadness, and Tears.   Aggression has many forms: Anger, Verbal Threats, Rage, Violence, as well as indirect forms such as Oppression.  Examples: "Daddy and Mommy say you cant have fun anymore, ever again", OR, on a political level, "we will be limiting benefits and raising taxes".    Today's Gangs are nothing new. When I was 5 years old in the 1950's in Los Angeles, I was afraid to grow up, as all the teenagers had switchblade knives, chains, and used cars as weapons.  Even Plato in 400 BC thought that the turmoil of society in those days was tearing down society.   Yet young people are just putting up defenses against a Society of Aggression, a society that wants to force them into aggression by sending them to war (and many other forms).

I am convinced that humans are born Good. Its what you eat, what you put inside you, which affects your personality, your health, and how people and the world treat you in return. Meat cause a negative reaction.

 Oppressions of Basic Instincts
-
Oppression of the basic instincts is all too common, and harmful to a persons psychological and physical self.  
.
BASIC INSTINCTS are called The "ID" by psychologists. Basic instincts of the ID  include:  sex, consumption of Food and Water, the body elimination process, seeking shelter. 
.
Giving a person lots of liquids to drink, and then not allowing them to use the restroom is an oppression of the "ID", this may be set up by the oppressor, in an unconscious manner (being totally unaware that they are doing this to someone).  
.
Psychologists say that we live in a Sexually Oppressed Society.   Attempts to liberate this natural instinct are hampered by diseases, such as aids, and religious attitudes against birth control.  Sex is good, sex is healthy, but because sex is a private thing, AND because of oppression in society, Sexual Instincts have been Repressed and Oppressed, many people are sexually frustrated, their basic needs blocked from satisfaction. 
 
Double or "Forced Aggression"
Society forcing people into the military, then putting a gun in a persons hands and forcing them to go out and kill someone is what we call "Forced Aggression", someone who does not want to do an act of aggression, but is forced to.   Insisting that a person to eat  meat (creating a temperament) is a Forced Aggression, and see if you can get away without eating meat, its not easy, especially in Family situations, but also in Employment situations.  Insisting that a supervisor or manager eat big steak, and then putting them in charge of a group of people in the work place, and telling them that they have to get the department to "behave", leading to rage, anger, blame, venom in words and emotions (when life could be nicer), is an example of Forced Aggression. I had an important job offer cancelled, after I was invited to lunch in the company cafeteria, and I did not consume any meat.  It upset those around me at lunch, that I did not choose any meat on my cafeteria tray.  They kept on insisting that I take various meat selections, insisting that it was all OK.  But when I did not take any meat selections, and not even any dairy products, and when I read a label of a juice bottle which I put back because it contained Bee Pollen, they inquired, and became upset. 
 
It often upsets people in restaurants at neighboring tables, when they over hear that a person is requesting food without meat, as it brings up the idea of cruelty to animals, at least in an unconscious sense.   No one wants the blame for being cruel to animals, they just want to eat their dinner, the same as everyone else, but when someone, and oddball of society comes in and is overheard requesting "I will have the Veggie Burger please", people at neighboring tables gag on their food, smiles turn to frowns, they drop silverware, laughter stops,  they rush to finish dinner quickly, the staff can be heard dropping and breaking dishware, the kitchen delays the "Veggie Burger" till the restaurant clears out, which it does quickly, and the vegetarian is left in a lonely empty restaurant, waiting to eat the greatly delayed veggie burger by themselves, except for those in their party, who don't like it either, and often confront the vegetarian individual, trying to persuade them to eat meat too; because, if everyone eats meat, then eating meat is OK.  Yes?  No, it is not OK.  Its unhealthy as per the Mayo Clinic, the American Cancer Society, and former US Surgeon General Koop, as well as a long list of other highly respected, knowledgeable  medical establishments who say that Meat is harmful, physically and psychologically.   And then there is the issue of cruelty to animals.
.
A  vegetarian is confronted at a dinner table by other guests at the table, who inquire as to WHY? a person chooses to be a Vegetarian, in the hopes of Nullifying the Cruelty to Animals reason, as it is not polite to bring that up while everyone is enjoying their meal.  So the vegetarian is often forced to explain "for HEALTH REASONS", as it would be impolite to declare "for MORAL REASONS".  But then again, on another level, it is very impolite to Animals to make them suffer needlessly; and it is impolite to try and force a vegetarian into a major confrontation at the dinner table over the issue. 
-
At a large family Thanksgiving feast, family members who have not seen one another for quite some time, are surprised at the presence of a vegetarian in the family, inquiring as to WHY? and confronting challenges such as "How do you get your protein?". (Soy products, etc).  Once these efforts have been exhausted, the challengers are still not satisfied, and mix meat foods in with the other foods, in an effort to get the vegetarian to eat meat anyway, in an attempt to bring comfort to those who choose to eat meat.  Such as while dishing out potatoes or vegetables, they invariable, accidentally dip the serving spoon into the gravy on their own plate, and then the gravy on the serving spoon gets mixed in with the vegetables; a challenge in an attempt to get the vegetarian to eat meat anyway; because, if everyone ate meat, then it would be OK.  OK? No its not OK, and believe me, I have seen the old "dip the serving spoon in gravy" trick performed many, many, many times, often leaving me with very little to eat (not that I suffer from lack of healthy food consumption, I just have to eat at home).

part 2
AGGRESSION to OPPRESSION of SEXUALITY
.
Aggression takes the form of Oppression; and Oppression often takes the form of Sexual Oppression.  
.
America is Sexually "hung up" (as are some other countries), while France, Sweden, and some South Sea Islands have a much healthier attitude towards Sexuality (unfortunately, Aids and other sexually transmitted diseases have hampered steps towards a healthier attitude towards Sexuality, in America and elsewhere).   Sex is a BASIC, NATURAL INSTINCT which should be mutually enjoyed by consenting adults, but sexuality has been oppressed (a secondary result of Aggression). While it is only natural for young people to have sex, it is outlawed for young people, and by the time we get older the Repression and Oppression is habitual, people accept No Sex as a standard.   Of course limited sex still goes on, resulting in babies, while the world could be having way more sex, and practicing Birth Control, while still maintaining a reasonable sized population.   The main focus should be confronting the realities of over population, with alternatives of many methods of Birth Control, while still having enough children, but not too many.
.
Sex is oppressed.   As I grew up, I recall in the early 1960's, at age 11, I thought I might never lose my virginity.   And it wass not just my environment, it's the way society was in the early 60's, filled with aggression and oppression.  
.
In the 80's when I moved to Southern California, I observed Mexican Magazines (Los Angeles area), with cover photos showing Mexican men tying up Mexican women with mal intent (gagged and bound with ropes, man with a knife).  
.
Living in Las Vegas for 7 years now, I look back at my views of Las Vegas before moving here. I thought of Las Vegas as a "Hotbed of Sex", which I was afraid of, due to reports of Disease.  I wanted sex from Love, not having to pay for it, and not having to force it in any manner. After 7 years in Las Vegas, my view of Las Vegas today is, I see the "worlds oldest profession" as more of a Rip Off, women taking advantage of men (from what I hear tell), by taking their money with implied promises of sex which go unfulfilled. The men often go without sex, tricked out of their money, due to embarrassment, con-artist tricks, or as a woman friend of mine once put it "there's a million whorehouse tricks to get their money and not have to have sex".  
.
Many men climb into a taxi cab and say "take me to the Chicken Ranch" (legal whorehouse in Nye County NV), just to have the driver reply "the round trip fare should be around $250.00 or more, and we must first stop by the cab yard to get a jack and spare tire, and leave the $250 deposit", only to have the customer get right out of the cab, dissatisfied, frustrated, having thought that he could just go to Las Vegas and pay to have sex, but it just is not that easy.   Prostitution is Legal on the Federal Level, as well as the State of Nevada level, but is illegal in Clark County (home of Las Vegas), one must go to nearby Nye County (one hours drive), many who want to go don't make it due to the cost of transportation, which is a form of Sexual Oppression. So near, yet so far. Who is stopping them from having the sex they want? Not themselves, not the Legal Prostitutes, not the State, not the Feds, just people in general, using local government to prevent people from achieving orgasm. So near, yet so far.   Yet Prostitution would not be needed if there were no sexual oppression.  
.
The poor guy who cant afford the cab fare (after flying off to Las Vegas, paying a fortune in "Legitimate" payments for air fare, hotel accommodations) attempts to find an illegal prostitute in town. She may: rub him the wrong way (rubbing a penis one direction causes erection, rubbing it the other direction creations a non-erection (many men are not aware of this); and the man gets the blame for not having an erection, and he is too embarrassed to understand, she gets the money and leaves, no sexual orgasm.
.
I must also also mention that within a traditionally legitimate relationship, men often don't understand that women need separate stimulation (10 to 20 minutes, 20 minutes being optimal) other than intercourse, as intercourse often does not stimulated a woman's clitoris enough, and thus women often do not get the needed orgasms for full satisfaction (a basic instinct, frustrated, causing psychological complications).   All due to lack of proper sex education in men, what should be a simple education, but due to Oppression of Human Sexuality, we find ourselves, men and women, Oppressed.  
.
ID & EGO
Sex is one of the Basic Instincts associated with what Psychologists refer to as the "Id" (pronounced, as in "hid" or "rid"). The Id is the basic instincts such as Sex, Drinking (water, etc), Eating, and the body elimination processes (using the restroom). These functions are Primary in Importance, and to Suppress them, to Oppress them is a major psychological blow to the personality, the mind, and society as a whole. (note: the word "erection" is not in Spell Check, another form of Sexual Oppression).   The psychological "Ego" is fulfilling the desires of the "Id" in a socially acceptable manner.  We do not go grabbing food in the buffet line and eat it right there, we use a utensil, place it on a plate, take it to our table, and politely use utensils to eat it.   Men do not go grabbing and attacking women sexually, we go thru proper social guidelines, we politely meet, hold hands, fall in love, and in a mutually acceptable situation, we go to a private secluded place and have sex, hopefully being considerate of each others wants and needs.   We fulfill the instincts of the ID thru the socially accepted guidelines of society showing that we have developed an EGO.  This is the definition of the EGO from the world of psychology, while in common everyday terms, the word EGO is meant to represent Self Centered behavior, this is not what I am talking about, I am using the term from the Psychological perspective, meaning conformity to socially acceptable behavior.
