Is There A Connection Between Additives, Allergies and ADHD?


Allergy KidsAlisa Fleming, ~ In the past few years, several concerned food allergy moms have stepped up their research in an effort to keep their children "safe." But the information that one mom discovered has caused her to become a voice to be reckoned with in the media.  Robyn O'Brien shares her discoveries on her own site, AllergyKids, but in a recent article with ABC News, she gains international recognition for her concerns of industry funding ties between the agri-chemical companies and pediatric allergists who have served on the FDA 'generally recognized as safe' panels.  Read the full article, Additives, Allergies and ADHD: Is There A Connection? Robyn wants us to take the final comment in the article with a grain of salt. In a special 'off the record' note, she states "Please note, that Dr. Adesman, who contests our position at the end of the segment, represents the Speakers Bureau for Novartis and McNeil Pharmaceuticals, the makers of ADHD drugs (!)
