Behavioral disorders and food

(article, Culinate staff)

Culinate's health columnist, Marissa Lippert, wrote earlier this year about the possible links between diet and such disorders as autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Now comes word of a new Dutch study aiming to document not only that ADHD, in particular, may be caused by diet, but that elimination diets can ameliorate the symptoms. The upshot? Eating fresh whole foods is better than processed, sugary treats. Yeah, you knew that already.
