Re: Sluggish Cognitive Tempo (SCT)

What I have found in my own research on Asperger's (I suspect I have it myself) is that food chemicals/artificials/preservatives do not cause it, but may worsen symptoms. If you eliminate these from your diet, the theory runs--if you cure the digestive problems going on--more "mental space" is freed up and that makes some tasks easier, including socializing.

But outside of the more extreme curebie camp, I've not found a great deal of support to suggest these problematic food chemicals cause ASD.

And personally, I don't buy it, anyway.
