Food Additives and Hyperactivity

I recently read that additives in certain foods cause hyperactivity in kids. Does this affect adults, too?

It's possible. "Some adults could experience adverse effects, such as irritability," says study coauthor John Warner, MD, a professor of pediatrics at Imperial College, London. The double-blind study showed that kids who consumed products such as fizzy fruit drinks and candies containing food coloring and the preservative sodium benzoate were more likely to be hyperactive than when they skipped these foods. More research is needed to pinpoint who exactly is susceptible, but if you're concerned about additives, talk to your doctor about which foods to eliminate.
