After having a son diagnosed with ASD, the first change recommended was dietary change. We ate healthy, so there wasn't much of a change with the exception of food dyes!!!! I didn't realize how many foods had dyes (3 years ago it was nearly everything). Now, many companies are removing the dyes and adding foods to enhance the color. It was AMAZING to see a transformation in my child just by eliminating dyes in his diet. Dye is not only from petroleum products, but it acts like speed. Why, oh why can we not eliminate dyes? The FDA isn't as strict as it should be...European foods are dye free and better for us.
