Hyperacidity can be reduced in children by cutting down food additives


London – As per the recent researches, if we eradicate all the artificially added flavors and colors from the diet of our kids we can help in preventing our children with problem Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It has been mentioned in an editorial in the British Medical Journal.

Professor Andrew Kemp from the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, in Sydney, said that there is good technical proof that preservatives and colorings augmented hyperactive actions.

Of the 3 main treatments for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children drugs, behavioral therapy, and dietary modification only drugs and dietary alteration are held up by data from numerous trials. Yet, behavioral therapy that has no technical evidence base, is still thought of as essential for “adequate treatment”, Kemp said.

This Data was published in the year 2007 depicted that normal (not hyperactive) children were considerably more hyperactive after they consumed a mixture of food colorings and a additive (sodium benzoate), with understandable implications for children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

16 of the studies reported positive effects in at least some of the children. Though, the EFSA pointed out that hyperactivity has a wide range of social and biological causes, and wholly center on food additives may “detract from the stipulation of adequate treatment” for children with the disarray. But, argues Kemp, to reduce the accumulating proof of nutritional factors may also do this.
