“Western diet” link to ADHD- Physorg.com

A new study from Perth’s Telethon Institute for Child Health Research shows an association between ADHD and a ‘Western-style’ diet in adolescents. The research findings have just been published online in the international Journal of Attention Disorders.

“A ‘Western’ pattern is a diet with a trend towards takeaway foods, confectionary, processed, fried and refined foods. These diets tend to be higher in total fat, refined sugar and sodium.”

“We found a diet high in the Western pattern of foods was associated with more than double the risk of having ADHD diagnosis compared with a diet low in the Western pattern, after adjusting for numerous other social and family influences,”
