Society has learned to go for quick fixes rather than addressing problems in a natural manner.
Take ADHD, for example, many parents have placed their children with ADHD on drugs such as Ritalin, which has delivered disastrous results for the children. While it may seem easier to put the responsibility in the hands of doctors, parents are ultimately responsible for the health of their own children.
Ritalin has all kinds of side effects, and none of them are good. Parents need to research ways to deal with ensuring that their children grow up to be healthy adults.
A case in point is the story of a couple who heard that there is a connection between food dyes and ADHD spectrum behaviors
The parents decided to take their daughter off medication and avoid foods that contain food dye right away. The results were amazing; the little girl was a different child within weeks of making the changes.
The FDA believes that food dyes do not necessarily cause hyperactivity across the board, but it does admit that food dyes can be the catalyst for problems in children who have already been labeled as children with behavioral problems
The FDA went on to state that children with behavioral issues when consuming other types of food as well. Research has shown that the children are intolerant of certain food types, and food dyes. While it is not conclusive that food dyes are responsible for affecting children with ADHD, where there is smoke, there is normally fire. All parents should endeavor to feed their children only the best foods possible. By cutting or reducing sweets and other nutritionally devoid foods from childrens’ diets, we can all contribute towards a brighter future for the adults of tomorrow.
