I put a bit more stock in the poor dietary decisions that many parents are making for their children.

I think you are endorsing what would be the ADHD equivalent of the refrigerator mom theory of autism.

Some of what the article covers is likely true but I doubt that any of that could be causing the genetic mutation (CNVs) that have been found in children with ADHD or the association with environmental factors such as pesticides.

I also strongly suspect that if you walked up to an adult with ADHD and suggested that their problems should attributed to a overall declining standard of living or larger class sizes in school or poverty, racism, and adult violence that you would have a fight on your hands.

Diet has never been empirically linked to AD/HD symptoms and the most up-to-date neuropsychological studies of AD/HD underscores a neurological origin for AD/HD that is inconsistent with a dietary origin. It's time to abandon that myth.
