  • My son doesn't have an allergy per se, but we found that artificial colors and preservatives definitely increased his ADHD behavior when he was young. Now he's 15.5 and it doesn't seem to matter as much.

  • No, but I can imagine it is hard to find anything except fresh foods that don't have one other other in it. Good luck to you.
