ADHD Children Teenagers linked to Preservatives and Artificial colors

The British medical journal The Lancet found ” a mix of additives commonly found in children’s foods increase the mean level of hyperactivity.” The finding lends strong support for the case that food additives exacerbate hyperactive behaviors: impulsivity, inattention, and overactivity.

The Food Std Agency advised parents to monitor children’s activity and if they noted a marked change with foods containing additives, to adjust their diets accordingly, eliminating preservatives and artificial colors.
