Government To Ban 6 Food Additives Linked To Child Hyperactivity

>> Sunday, November 16, 2008

How many times have I heard from my boy's therapist at school that taking away the red and yellow artificial dyes away from their diet would help with hyperactivity, and now I can see why. Released on November 13, 2008 from Mail Online in United Kingdom is an article about the government banning these types of artificial colors or dyes in food. You can read the article here.

The suspected dyes that they are considering are as follows.

Tartrazine (E102); Quinoline yellow (E104); Sunset yellow (E110); Carmoisine (E122); Ponceau 4R (E124) and Allura red (E129).

Here in the United States, most are know as just red and yellow with a specific number following such as 5 or 6. That is why I try to eliminate anything with either food color no matter what number it has with it. I can immediately tell a difference in their hyperactivity within minutes of them having a food or drink with these colors.
I suggest trying this just to see if it would help with your child's ADHD hyperactivity. Hopefully this is one more way to solving the mysteries behind hyperactivity and the way chemicals can have an effect on us.
