Caronamy, this is so true about the food coloring! I have a son who was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 5 yrs old. I did a lot of reading and looked into food additives and I found by raising my own vege's and not giving him red food dye in foods and also no foods with nitrates, hot dogs, lunch meat, etc. he was fine. He's 14 now, and he's just a normal kid!
I've also read that the mercury that they use to set the imunizations can also lead to ADHD. The ones that are really bad are the triple imunizations like MMR because it's 3 times the mercury. Also they are thinking about puting a warning on any of the fish that are high in mercury so pregnant women won't eat it. Being a parent can be so much more work than we ever thought!
