Neurotherapeutics. 2012 Jul;9(3):599-609.
Arnold reviews the history of the effects of artificial food colors (AFC) on ADHD and the testimony to the 2011 FDA Food Advisory Committee.
Arnold discusses possible biological mechanisms such as the effects of food dyes on nutrient levels, genetic vulnerability, and changes in electroencephalographic beta-band power.
QUOTE: “AFCs appear to be more of a public health problem than an ADHD problem.”
