Food Additives Affects Kids' Hyperactivity

Several years ago, a local Holistic physician showed me a film of a group of 5 to 9 year old children setting quietly along side their parents in what appeared to be a typical day care center.

The children behaved like normal kids. The parents were asked to leave the room and the camera began rolling. The physician brought into the room, a tray of all sorts of junk food that kids eat regularly. Dead food from a factory conveyor belt full of additives, sugar, taste enhancers, and food colorings.

The cooperative children began playing with various toys while they chowed down on the free goodies buffet. Forty-five minutes later, the children 'got off' on what they ate, became wild and frenetic, began throwing things, beating on each other, and abusive to their parents when the re-entered the shock, by then. Kid were sassing their parents who they respectfully treated only an hour ago. I could not believe my eyes.

Everything we eat leaves it's imprint long after it is gone. High quality food is so vital to a child's growth, so why do we feed them cancerous hot dogs, chicken McNuggets, boxed macaroni and cheese with yellow food dye, and other forms of crappy, dead food that alters their demeanor and renders them obese.

Could it be greed. Yup! I've been banned from two local high schools cafeterias because they fear we will uncover the truth. Greed takes priority over the health and well being of children from coast to coast. Rather selfish and pathetic when you think about it.
