Beware the pushy

MEN who eat a lot of fish are driven by
ambition and the desire for success, British
researchers claim.

   Seven in 10 men who
frequently eat canned tuna.
sardines, salmon, mackerel
or kippers admit to being
ambitious, and one in two
rate themselves as more
successful than others.

The study, commissioned
by John West Foods,
reveals they are also thin-
skinned types, with only 5
per cent of regular fish-
eaters saying they coped
well with criticism
compared with a quarter
of the non-fish eaters.
