1. Low levels of TC have been reported in criminals, people diagnosed with violent or aggressive conduct disorders, homicidal offenders with histories of violence, or suicide attempts related to alcohol, and people with poorly internalised social norms and low self-control.
2. If reason and logic were to prevail, this should have been the signal to abandon all attempts to lower the TC. A whole series of investigations had not only failed to show any benefit whatsoever in terms of reduced death rates but had actually confirmed that those with reduced TC had an increased risk of dying. There was no discussion to show that those present had any appreciation that the rationale for all the programmes to lower TC had just been blown out of the water.
