Last week, when Coke and Pepsi came out with their announcement that caramel coloring contained chemicals that had been shown to cause cancer in animals, it did not surprise me. The stress caramel coloring put on my child's nervous system was frightening. And caramel coloring is not only in soda. So read labels. We had some experiences where caramel coloring in chicken nuggets also triggered huge fits. Again, I urge you to READ LABELS.
If you have a child with unusual behaviors, consider what might be triggering those behaviors. Once I put my child on a whole food diet (zero processed foods), within 4 days, the tantrums disappeared. She still had sensitivities that caused her some attention issues, but those we cleared up using an acupressure technique called NAET. And now I know they can be reduced or eliminated by using drug-free, all-natural, needle-free acupuncture patches and Uhe Method (www.UheMethod.com).
Here is the link to the video about Coke and Pepsi changing their formula.
