Dr Morrow Brown, who sadly died in 2013 had extensive experience of the many effects of foods and dyes, such as tartrazine, on behaviour and wellbeing of children. The result of many of his dietary manipulations proved a remarkable improvement in behaviour and quality of life of vulnerable developing children. We are proud to reproduce some of Dr Morrow-Brown's work here
Below is Dr Morrow Brown's description of a patient's progress: "A paediatrician had dismissed this boy's problems as emotional and due to poor parenting. When first seen he would not allow a doctor to touch him, but after changing his diet he allowed blood to be taken from a vein without protest!"
