Is ADHD a made up illness that's simply kids consuming too much sugar, dyes and crap food?

Is it a real illness or just kids hyper from too much crap?

  • Seeing my son, who has not outgrown it & is an absolute health fanatic, I can tell you from personal experience, that it's real to him & us.  I'm sure diet can play a role in overall health, but when you see someone who truly has it, I'm grateful there are treatments for it to help them.  (esp. w/ school)

  • not made up at all

    however SOME kids can have less ADD ADHD and Autism when they have the crap taken out of their diets
    not all kids have a change for the better but SOME do

    and it is NOT the sugar
