ADHD linked to eating foods like candy and burgers while pregnant
By Keleigh Nealon, Buzz60
Everyone knows burgers and candy taste amazing, but as it turns out, they may not be so amazing for your baby.
Eating foods high in sugar and fat while pregnant may lead to attention disorders.
Lying, fighting and ADHD have previously been linked to infants who eat unhealthy food -- but a new study suggests that the effects of a bad diet could start as early as while the infant is in the womb.
The journal of child psychology and psychiatry reports that diets high in sugar and fat early on in a pregnancy can mutate a gene that controls brain development.
This was associated with children who showed symptoms of ADHD between the ages of 7 and 13.
