In an interview Dr. Andrew Saul co-author of the book, Niacin: The Real Story
discusses the effects of niacin deficiency in relation to violent crimes.

Essentially, they’re beyond deficient—they’re dependent on high-doses of niacin in order to remain well. This particularly appears to be the case with mental disorders.
