Thirty-one children with behavioural problems and learning difficulties were allergy tested … 15 of them were given the Feingold diet (then called the KP Diet). Ninety-three per cent (93%) responded with improved behaviour in the areas of overactivity, distractability, impulsiveness and excitability. Sleep and bedwetting problems were resolved partially or completely.
QUOTE: “This study demonstrates that the aforementioned elimination diet significantly affects behaviour.”
NOTE: Many people who don’t “test positive” on allergy tests still respond well to the diet. Sensitivity to additives is not usually an allergy.
