ADHD and Food Sensitivity
A double-blind, randomized study was conducted to find if food sensitivity could be linked to ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder) in children (aged 4 – 8). While there were some initial improvements with the ARS scores (ADHD rating scale) for the children on elimination diets, relapses also occurred. The study found that yes, there was a link of ADHD and food sensitivities, however, IgG blood tests were not reliable in identifying specific food sensitivities in children. Lancet.

Sugared Drinks Increase Heart Disease Risk
Harvard researchers have completed a multi-decade study on the relationship between sugared drinks and heart disease. The study included some 18,000 participants.
Their conclusion is that that sugared drinks, even one per day, increases one's risk of heart disease by 20%. Men who consumed sugared drinks daily had higher levels of lipids like triglycerides, and lower levels of HDL (good cholesterol).
While this study included exclusively men, similar research has been conducted with women, and the results were much the same.
The conclusion of one of the doctors involved in the study is that sugary drinks should be recognized as a treat, and not a dietary norm. (See Protein Key™) Prepared Foods.
