Natural Food Colorings

Artificial colors and flavors can irritate some sensitive individuals, causing behavioral and other problems. Studies have shown these chemicals make children hyperactive and inattentive as well as a negative impact on their ability to learn. Excito-toxins, like MSG and aspartame, lead to hyperactivity and can lead to neurological cell death. These chemicals also feed into the oxidative stress cycle to which an autistic child may be particularly vulnerable.
