sure, we do some of it.....with antibiotics/chemotherapy/radiation/hormones etc etc....it's not just about cars/industrial stuff...

Think Food Doesn’t Affect Behavior? You’ve Got to Read This.
November 7, 2013 By Adrienne 65 Comments
How Food Affects Behavior. Think it doesn't? You need to read this post.
{Today I have the pleasure of introducing to you Ruth Almon, of Paleo Diet Basics.  Ruth is sharing with us some fascinating information about how food affects behavior.  I was amazed when I read this–check it out and make sure to share it to get the word out.  So many behavioral issues can be traced to the gut. We need to all inform and empower parents to make a difference in their children’s (and their own) lives.}
It’s common to joke about kids being on a sugar high after a party, so all of us know –on some level–that food influences how kids behave.
But how many of us realize the extent to which our children’s day-to-day actions are shaped and molded by the foods we feed them?
An experiment on the effects of food on behavior done by the British TV series, The Food Hospital, produced shocking results. Party food loaded with sugar, artificial coloring, and other additives has the power to turn your lovely, cooperative child into a badly behaved, physically aggressive youngster.
The Food and Behavior Experiment
Children in Britain aged 5 – 9 attended a party. They were split into two groups:
Group One: was fed healthy options such as apple slices, carrot sticks, sandwiches, hummus, etc. and was given water to drink.
Group Two: received the usual party fair: candy, potato chips, and soda (or as they say in the UK, sweets, crisps, and fizzy pop), all containing loads of sugar, artificial coloring, and other additives.
The children’s ability to follow instruction, concentrate, and remember information was then measured as they played party games, and their actions were carefully recorded. You may be surprised by what they found.
Food Behavior Table

It wasn’t only how they behaved that was remarkably different.
The healthy food group did “48% better in the games overall” – that’s a huge improvement in performance.
Check out these videos to see what happened.

The Experiment. On Video.
Part One – The Test.

See how the coordinators divided up the groups, what they ate, and how things started to play out. This is very interesting!

Part Two

See the results of the experiment–how the kids behave and learn after eating their meals. Watch as parents and a psychologist evaluate behavior during play and learning tasks. A Must. See.

Again, click on the photo to see the video.  If Part 1 is showing, click on Part 2 below the video to see the results of this telling experiment.

Think Food Doesn't Affect Behavior? You have to read and watch this!
**Note:  The woman, when stating that they “don’t know” what made the difference, mentions “E numbers.” From Wikipedia, this is what she is referring to: “E numbers are codes for chemicals which can be used as food additives for use within the European Union and Switzerland (the “E” stands for “Europe”).They are commonly found on food labels throughout the European Union. Safety assessment and approval are the responsibility of the European Food Safety Authority”
Conclusion
Those who ran the study say that they don’t know what it is in the party food that affects the children. Is it the sugar? The artificial coloring? Maybe the lack of essential nutrients? It’s not clear.
I suspect it’s a combination, with individual children being more affected by different things.
What is clear is that children not only behave better but concentrate better, follow instructions better, and remember more when they eat healthier food. Let’s not forget that concentration, following instructions, and memory are fundamental building blocks of the learning process and vital for success at school.
Are We Setting Our Kids (and Ourselves) Up for Failure?
So having watched this segment, I couldn’t help think that many kids are inadvertently being set up for failure by their own parents. Moms and Dads certainly intend to do the best for their children, and part of this can mean feeding them “regular food” that won’t set their children apart from their friends. But in doing so, our children are being sabotaged in ways that make it difficult for them to perform school tasks successfully.
They’re fed processed foods that can make them aggressive and difficult to control. Then, as if that weren’t bad enough, they’re penalized for their inability to learn and their out-of-control behavior.
We all know that a child who is constantly hitting other children, having tantrums, and running around wildly is a child who is continually reprimanded. We also all know a child who doesn’t follow teachers’ instructions, can’t remember what he or she was taught yesterday, or can’t concentrate long enough to finish a task receives poor grades and negative feedback.
No parent wants this for his or her child.
Tragically, in the worst cases, kids who are simply reacting to what they are being fed end up taking unnecessary prescription drugs or are sent to special schools.
Setting Children up for Success

How do we feed children to prepare them succeed in school and get along in society? Generally speaking, the more natural a food is, the less likely it is to cause a severe behavioral reaction. Keep in mind that there are plenty of individual differences in how children react to specific foods and additives.
One family might discover that avoiding a certain additive transforms their child into a little angel, while in another family cutting out wheat may do wonders.
That said, watch out in particular for these three substances, which are often linked with behavioral problems.
Three of the Most Troubling Things to Eat
1. Artificial Coloring

More and more evidence is pointing to artificial food dyes as a major cause of ADHD in children. While this hasn’t been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, the facts are strong enough to convince many European countries to ban blue 1 (brilliant blue), blue 2 (indigo carmine), yellow 5 (tartrazine), and yellow 6 (sunset yellow) among others. These food colors have FDA approval and are found in cereal, candy, and a variety of colorful foods popular with children.
2. Sugar

There is a shocking amount of sugar in processed foods – and some of it is lurking in places you wouldn’t suspect. One 12 oz. can of coke has 9 ½ teaspoons of sugar. The same amount of Tropicana Farmstand Juice has 9 teaspoons. There’s also lots of sugar in flavored yogurts and chocolate milk – not so surprising. But did you know that there is often sugar in savory foods, such as ketchup, bread, sausages, and barbeque sauce? Your child can consume a considerable amount of sugar even before you let him or her eat candy, and high sugar levels contribute to hyperactivity.
3. Sodium benzoate

Sodium benzoate is a preservative found in carbonated beverages and fruit juices, condiments, candies and many other products. It has been implicated either separately or together with artificial colorings for causing or aggravating ADHD symptoms, and is best avoided. Read labels.
A real-food, nutrient-dense paleo diet – which excludes these three substance as well as anything likely to affect behavior – seems to me the best way to ensure your kids get the right nutrition. Click to learn what the paleo diet is.
How Does This Affect Your Family
You may think that these problems don’t affect you since your child doesn’t suffer from serious behavioral problems or learning disabilities. Remember, the children in the video were just a regular group of school kids–not children selected because they didn’t behave well. The impact on them was profound, so clearly, this is a concern for every parent.
Let’s do all we can to set our kids up for success.
{From Adrienne.  I have REALLY noticed the relationship between food and behavior in our home. We’ve removed colors, preservatives, and then gluten, and sugar and have seen a lot of things improve as a result.  Let’s for sure do what we can to get the word out about this.  So many meds and doctors visits and frustrating scenarios could be avoided if we try to feed our kids (and ourselves) well.}


those who control the food supply control the masses
those who control the fear control the masses
those who control the knowledge control the masses
etc etc....

living as hebrew slaves to our own detriment


...you are a product of your environment, your environment is a product of your priorities, your priorities are a product of you......

The replacement of morality and conscience with law produces a deadly paradox.

Quoted from A Better Rotterdam
ughh I can't believe their are people dumb enough to dispute that our actions are causing this. Quit putting your politics in front of the future of your offspring and their offspring and their offspring, etc... The scientific community is in almost unanimous agreement this is happening. All the reputable scientists who have no financial stake in this believe it's happening, wake up!!! Stop believing what your corporate masters tell you! Your listening to the 1% of scientists who are funded by energy companies who have a financial gain to be made by attempting to dispute what is clear and obvious to anyone with scientific training. Your letting your ego as a "conservative" overwhelm your common sense. Quite being puppets for the energy companies and the billionaires that run them, and help us find ways to slow down the destructive activities we are doing.


The "deniers" are incapable of rational thought.  They deny climate change, they deny Obama is a
US Citizen, they deny that the earth is over 6000 years old, they deny any FACT that doesn't further
their agenda.


The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral
philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

Quoted Text


Eureka! Tea partiers know science



A finding in a study on the relationship between science literacy and political ideology surprised the Yale professor behind it: Tea party members know more science than non-tea partiers.
Yale law professor Dan Kahan posted on his blog this week that he analyzed the responses of more than 2,000 American adults recruited for another study and found that, on average, people who leaned liberal were more science literate than those who leaned conservative.

However, those who identified as part of the tea party movement were actually better versed in science than those who didn’t, Kahan found. The findings met the conventional threshold of statistical significance, the professor said.

Kahan wrote that not only did the findings surprise him, they embarrassed him.
“I’ve got to confess, though, I found this result surprising. As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I’d be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension,” Kahan wrote.

“But then again, I don’t know a single person who identifies with the tea party,” he continued. “All my impressions come from watching cable tv — & I don’t watch Fox News very often — and reading the ‘paper’ (New York Times daily, plus a variety of politics-focused Internet sites like Huffington Post and POLITICO). I’m a little embarrassed, but mainly, I’m just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.”

From Buck's link, discussing the difference between Left & Right, relation to science:
Again, the relationship is trivially small, and can't possibly be contributing
in any way to the ferocious conflicts over decision-relevant science that we are
experiencing.


Nice try Bucky!

How come the climate change worshipers don't go after the countries who do the most polluting like China, India, Indonesia and North Korea? How about those cutting down the rain forests and killing the trees and plants that take CO2 from the air and replace it with O2?

the earth is MILLIONS of years old and climate change IS a fact....the weight is on the scientists and mouth pieces to promote
equal truth in climate change....it isn't just about greenhouse gasses.....greenhouse gas science is science for industry and
policy makers and the $$ people....

climate change is natural phenomenon that is and has been happening to earth/on earth and in space for millions/billions of years..

hiding behind greenhouse effect (and other cliches which are not all false) to make the lack of knowledge hidden so that the
;experts' can rule keeps us all in line....

I haven't seen god and I haven't seen the end of the universe and neither have the 'experts'.....


...you are a product of your environment, your environment is a product of your priorities, your priorities are a product of you......

The "LIBERAL" campaign to save the rainforest has been ongoing since at least the 70's...
Did you miss the 70's. 80's, 90's, 2000's & 10's?

What good did it do. You didn't mention the biggest polluters and how you can stop them but only pick on countries that have money to redistribute to support your agenda.

Majority Believe In Climate Change

Quoted Text
The majority of people in roughly 40 states believe climate change is real
and say immediate action should be taken to curb it, according to new data
released by a House task force.
The report found at least 62 percent of the population in each state surveyed supports
government action to curb greenhouse gas emissions from power plants — even if it means
using regulations or tax breaks.

The newly released data by Stanford University professor Jon Krosnick came from surveys
conducted in 46 states.
Krosnick also found that roughly 75 percent of the population in each state say global
warming is happening.

And 84 percent who took that view were from states recently hit by drought like Arizona
and New Mexico.

“This new report is crystal clear,” Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) said in a statement
. “It shows that the vast majority of Americans — whether from red states or blue —
understand that climate change is a growing danger."

Majority believe in God too.  A lot of people have faith based belief systems.  People believed an ice age was coming 35 years ago too.  And that the world would be out of oil by now.  It's amazing what people will believe in.
