I have already posted on this kind of research before, but it is interesting to hear this week that a Food Standards Agency (FSA) study of 300 random children found they behaved impulsively and lost concentration after a drink containing additives. The FSA now says hyperactive children might benefit from fewer additives.

Dr Andrew Wadge, the FSA’s chief scientist, said: “We have revised our advice to consumers: if a child shows signs of hyperactivity or ADHD then eliminating the colours used in the… study from their diet might have some beneficial effects.”

He did say though there were many factors associated with hyperactivity including genes, being born prematurely, environment and upbringing.
