HACSG was founded way back in 1977.
Our aim was to help families who were desperate for help with their hyperactive children (the terms ADHD did not come from the USA until late 1980’s) and to raise awareness about the importance of diet and the effect of artificial colourings on children. We didn’t expect to still be needed 45 years later!
Everyone has heard about the importance of Essential Fatty Acids, the Omega 3 and 6 oils for ADHD, well it was the HACSG, who with the support of Dr David Horrobin and others involved with nutrition, whose research published in 1981 showed how important these EFA’s, Vitamin and Minerals were for the Hyperactive/ ADHD children.
It was through our work that many supermarkets, food and drink manufacturers stopped using very questionable additives.
Over the years we’ve attended countless meetings with Government Ministers and Doctors / Professors who have supported us and our work for families, trying to persuade them to do more to recognise the role of diet, additives, food intolerances and nutrition for Hyperactivity and ADHD.
There is a great deal of research from around the world to support our aims, but sadly, we and our families still encounter a disbelieving attitude.
We would love to hear from you to let us know how we’ve helped your family, what could we do better, what might prove more helpful. Do get in touch. e.mail us at email@example.com
