Additives Messing Up Our Kids


www.adelaidenow.com - June 1st, 2012
PARENTS concerned about their children's behaviour, health and wellbeing should take a closer look at their diet.

So-called "natural" food additives with seemingly innocuous names, and even citrus fruits, berries and tomatoes, can make good kids turn bad.

Visiting author and former NSW Senior Australian of the Year Sue Dengate says manufacturers are using "dirty tricks" to sneak food additives past clever consumers.

"Manufacturers know now that consumers don't want nasty additives, but they're not necessarily taking them out, they're just making them look healthier," she said.

Ms Dengate warned natural additives often had similar chemical structures to artificial additives and some of the chemicals in fruit could cause just as many problems when taken in high doses.

Mia I have a child with a rare genetic disorder so I try to be very careful about what he eats. We stopped McDonald's about a yr ago and he hasn't had an asthma attack since .

When making fairing compounds, stir in as much 407 or 410 as you can blend in smoothly-for easy sanding, the thicker the better. Be sure all of the filler is thoroughly blended before the mixture is applied. Spread the mixture into a thinner layer, either around the inside of the mixing cup or onto a flat non-porous surface or palette, to extend its working life. visit here
