No research to back up your claims.

I am sure there are benefits for ADD/ADHD people who eat a healthy diet but you give no research to back up your claims. It's just another lame attempt at Jenny McCarthy science that uses scare tactics to try to "help" people.


You are irresponsible and mostly misinformed.

Research into diet
by: Anonymous

I just needed to comment on the comment about 'no research' to back up diet being beneficial for ADHD.

There is research. You can learn more about it through Dr. Kenny Handleman at www.alternativesforadhd.com. I was at a conference he spoke at a couple months ago and he mentioned two scientific studies supporting diet changes as being beneficial. One from the Netherlands, published in 2008, with kids on a very strict diet (not practical in real life - but this was research to prove or disprove the concept) over 5 weeks 2/3rds had a 50% reduction in symptoms.

A study on food additives, published in the Lancet in 2007, was very well designed and supported that kids 3-4 and 8-9 yrs old became much more hyperactive after just a few weeks of receiving food dyes and additives.

There is more I'm sure. Just do a search in the medical community before you state what is not true.

No Research?
by: TJ

I experiment with my self. I have ADHD and I know what works for me.

I have learned from others like Dr Block from Houston Texas, my friend Dr Burba, and other doctors from around the country.

People like you don't want proof. You try to use your lies to scare people into modern medicine which has failed everyone.

Read the Protein Life Plan book. I use that as 1 piece of research that you failed to cite because you didnt read my site.
