Hyperactivity: link to foods

A recent study of 79 hyperactive children has added weight to the argument that certain foods and additives aggravate the condition, if not cause it

A recent study of 79 hyperactive children has added weight to the argument that certain foods and additives aggravate the condition, if not cause it.

Of the 79 given a restricted diet, 59 of them improved. Foods and additives were then reintroduced one at a time.

A double blind crossover study in 19 of the children showed that problem foods or additives had a significant adverse effect on them.

The findings are a blow to those who hold that hyperactivity is a chemical reaction, and can be controlled with Ritalin.
