    Anyone know about the Feingold Foundation's no-salicylates
    protocol to treats cognitive disabilities associated with ADHD?

    Dr. St. Amand mentions Dr. Feingold's research into cause and effect between salicylates and ADHD?

    Went to Feingold's website, where for X dollars you can get Feingold's diet, which names salicylates, phenols, food additives and preservatives, among others, as provocations for ADHD, and autism?

    Wondering if anyone has any knowledge about Feingold's work?

    Thanks,

    Anna

    I had a hyperactive child in the 60's and Dr. Feingold was finding that a diet without artificial flavors and colors was helpful. My daughter started doing her own shopping with me, reading labels when she was just a child. I think it helped her. I have never heard about sals being involved.

    Love, Mikie
