In an effort by the author to derive a new branch of sociology, this chapter introduced a new definition, “Molecular Sociology.” The consequence of the author’s numerous publications led him to think of molecular sociology as a new branch of sociology. These studies have extensively examined human behavioural initiatives and motives that can not be readily described according to current theories. We have taken into account that human behaviour is a dynamic phenomenon and can not be imposed in one frame. We have shown through many studies that molecular sociology contains molecular modifications that can be linked to violent behaviours. Exposure to heavy metals, particularly lead (pb), can lead to aggressive behaviour and the induction of negative perception that may result in jailing. Deficiency of vitamin D can lead to changes and deviations in medical and social terms. The deficiency or insufficiency of vitamin D was substantially associated with depression and addiction. We have also shown that infection with pathogens such as latent toxoplasmosis can lead to changes in perception and involvement in a wide range of violent acts. Currently, the COVID-19 pandemic has provided clear examples of how illness can affect social life. Taken together, we conclude that it is time to speak about molecular sociology as a new branch of sociology to be well framed and thoroughly investigated in the future.
