Food additives in the form of synthetic colorings, flavorings, and preservatives, which lace all processed foods, increase your childhood chances of becoming hyperactive and developing attention deficit disorder.

Behaviors connected to synthetic food additives include short attention span, restlessness, irritability, aggressiveness, and excitability.”
