The ADHD Connection – Food Colors and Flavors
It is said that we “eat with our eyes as much as our mouths”. Cupcakes, gummy candies and beautiful tasty-looking candies are all full of food colors, additives, dyes and high fructose syrup. Additives have been used for centuries. Salt, sugar and vinegar were among the first to be used to preserve foods. However, adverse changes started about 30 years ago when chemicals that were labeled “safe” were added to our food which started affecting our health, our children’s health and even behavior. But did you know that most food coloring, flavors and additives are derived from petroleum? Would you give gasoline to your child to consume?
Stop using foods that contain dyes and other chemicals. It’s within our power to protect our children while creating a better and healthier environment for them too.
