Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This incisive report poses the question: Could dyes in our food (euphemistically called "food coloring") actually be the main cause of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)? Learn which dyes are the worst, and why the UK and Europe have a better safety record than the US.

Did you know that the amount of allowable food dyes in our diet has increased five times between 1955 and 2007? Food dyes have now been officially linked to hyperactivity in children with learning disabilities, but so far the FDA has not acted to warn consumers about their toxic effects, despite the urging of public health organizations. The article also explores the recent ground-breaking Dutch study led by researcher Lidy Peisser that shows once and for all that food dyes actually CAUSE ADHD symptoms in children and adults!

This helpful 1400-word piece, which includes a short bibliography, is geared both toward parents of young children AND to adults who suspect they might have ADHD and want to clean up their diet.
