Although Feingold’s diet didn't call for eliminating sugar specifically, it did suggest to many parents that food additives might be better avoided. Little surprise, then, that refined sugar soon came under scrutiny. </li></ul>This a project for a high school AP Psychology course. This is a fictionalized account of having a psychological ailment.

  16. 19. Hyperactivity with food dyes <ul><li>Studies tying food colorings to hyperactivity in children, approached the FDA panel to review the research and decide whether more study is needed or whether foods with the dyes should carry warning labels. FDA scientists said in a report that there was no definitive proof that food dye causes hyperactivity in most children, though kids with behavioral disorders might be highly sensitive to them. A petition in 2008 was filed, asking regulators to ban Red 40, Yellow 5 and six other colorings, </li></ul><ul><li>Some parents have found success in removing foods with dyes from their child's diet. The concept originated in the 1970s, when pediatrician Benjamin Feingold first noted a link between behavior and additives and prescribed a diet that eliminated dyes and other additives. Some grocery chains, like Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe's, don't sell dye-containing products. But foods with the dyes are widely available. They include popular products like Cheetos, Froot Loops, Hostess Twinkies and Pop-Tarts, the Times said. </li></ul>“ Children are exacerbated by exposure to a number of substances in food, including, but not limited to, synthetic color additives.“ – New York Times This a project for a high school AP Psychology course.
