NPR Report: Diet May Help ADHD Kids More Than Drugs

This is a modified py-6 that occupies the entire horizontal space of its parent.

By NPR Staff | March 12, 2011

Hyperactivity. Fidgeting. Inattention. Impulsivity. If your child has one or more of these qualities on a regular basis, you may be told that he or she has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. If so, they’d be among about 10 percent of children in the United States.

Kids with ADHD can be restless and difficult to handle. Many of them are treated with drugs, but a new study says food may be the key. Published in The Lancet journal, the study suggests that with a very restrictive diet, kids with ADHD could experience a significant reduction in symptoms.

The study’s lead author, Dr. Lidy Pelsser of the ADHD Research Centre in the Netherlands, writes in The Lancet that the disorder is triggered in many cases by external factors — and those can be treated through changes to one’s environment.

“ADHD, it’s just a couple of symptoms — it’s not a disease,” the Dutch researcher tells All Things Considered weekend host Guy Raz.

The way we think about — and treat — these behaviors is wrong, Pelsser says. “There is a paradigm shift needed. If a child is diagnosed ADHD, we should say, ‘OK, we have got those symptoms, now let’s start looking for a cause.’ ”

Pelsser compares ADHD to eczema. “The skin is affected, but a lot of people get eczema because of a latex allergy or because they are eating a pineapple or strawberries.”

According to Pelsser, 64 percent of children diagnosed with ADHD are actually experiencing a hypersensitivity to food. Researchers determined that by starting kids on a very elaborate diet, then restricting it over a few weeks’ time.

“It’s only five weeks,” Pelsser says. “If it is the diet, then we start to find out which foods are causing the problems.”

Teachers and doctors who worked with children in the study reported marked changes in behavior. “In fact, they were flabbergasted,” Pelsser says.

“After the diet, they were just normal children with normal behavior,” she says. No longer were they easily distracted or forgetful, and the temper tantrums subsided.

Some teachers said they never thought it would work, Pelsser says. “It was so strange,” she says, “that a diet would change the behavior of a child as thoroughly as they saw it. It was a miracle, a teacher said.”

But diet is not the solution for all children with ADHD, Pelsser cautions.

“In all children, we should start with diet research,” she says. If a child’s behavior doesn’t change, then drugs may still be necessary. “But now we are giving them all drugs, and I think that’s a huge mistake,” she says.

Also, Pelsser warns, altering your child’s diet without a doctor’s supervision is inadvisable.

“We have got good news — that food is the main cause of ADHD,” she says. “We’ve got bad news — that we have to train physicians to monitor this procedure because it cannot be done by a physician who is not trained.”

“… She and her husband operated a car dealership with alleged ties to the mob and an especially gruesome murder.  She also exhibited her typical histrionic bellowing observed whenever her ox is gored. …”

By Richard Silverstein

Tikun Olam, Eurasia Review

The Southern Poverty Law Center comes a bit late to the game in understanding the power and danger of anti-Muslim hate.  But they’ve made great strides by naming Pam Geller’s Stop the Islamization of America as an official hate group, alongside such wonderful representatives of the species as the Westboro Baptist Church, the Aryan Nation, KKK, and the Nation of Islam.  It’s about time Pam was recognized for her important contribution to the genre of hate.

She responded by publishing Morris Dees divorce papers, as if that was supposed to somehow defame SPLC.  Such lunacy on her part is rich when you consider that she and her husband operated a car dealership with alleged ties to the mob and an especially gruesome murder.  She also exhibited her typical histrionic bellowing observed whenever her ox is gored:

“It’s outrageous that the SPLC designates a group dedicated to protecting the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and legal equality for all Americans as a ‘hate group,’” she said. “The SPLC, instead of standing for those freedoms, is carrying water for the real haters, the real neo-Nazi Jew-haters: the forces of Islamic supremacism and jihad. The SPLC doesn’t even have a category for Islamic jihadi groups. The greatest threat facing our nation, our people, our world, and they are shilling for them.”

… The SPLC is just a cash cow for the clueless and/or complicit tools of Islamic supremacism on the Left. The SPLC is reviled in civil rights circles for its notorious reputation. It does little to no work, while its officials enriching themselves by raising huge amounts from unsuspecting donors.”

I hate to spoil the party Pammy, but precisely which “civil rights circles” revile SPLC for its “notorious reputation?”  She of course means her own organization which she (seriously, now) views as a “civil rights” organization.  Why sure, she’s for the civil rights of everyone who isn’t Muslim.  I wonder if she’s opposed to allowing Muslims to be American citizens.  You see it creates a rather inconvenient problem because once they’re citizens they’re entitled to the rights we white people (and even Black people, heaven forfend) enjoy.

Her talk about SPLC being a cash cow for its officials is also rich when you consider the tony digs Pammy enjoys on New York’s Upper Eastside in her multi-million dollar condo, thanks to the support of her “clueless complicit tools of anti-Muslim hate on the right” whose largess offers her the lifestyle to which she’s become accustomed and entitled.  Not to mention her husband–who conveniently passed away just as she began her anti-Muslim jihad–willing her the gains, gotten and ill, of their Long Island car dealership.

I’m also delighted to see the Jewish Task Force on the list, which is a JDL-spinoff run by Chaim Ben Pesach, aka Victor Vancier.  The latter served time in federal prison for engaging in acts of terror while he was in the JDL.  Many believe that Vancier is the owner of the Masada2000 hate site.

SPLC, by rights, should add other American Jewish extremist settler support groups like Hebron Fund and Central Fund of Israel to its list since they echo Geller’s anti-Muslim ideology.  Several years ago, I called and spoke to Mark Potok about this, but I don’t think he felt the urgency that I did.
