Tho alot of people like to laugh this off, there is certainly sound science to back up the allergic responses to certain foods. Several years ago, a Dr. Ray was using concentration/dilution therapy on children with food allergies. The videos I saw were astounding. They would give a 3yr old kid one drop of say.... a corn concentrate under his skin, with a TB syringe. Within 10 minutes, the kid would be out of control....hitting, biting and spitting (this response was typical of 90% of the kids with allergies). Then, they would give him a diluted form of the same allergen and within the same amount of time.....he would calm down and become focused.
My friend who has a child with FOD and CP, went to Dr. Ray's clinic in Dallas and the child was able to overcome the constant seizures she was having. Basically, what they do is find out what they're allergic to, then mix a diluted formula to give them for 3 weeks. After that.. they should be able to resume those foods in their diet without side effects. I was extremely impressed.
As far as people turning into criminals.....I'm not sure of that analysis. I do know some of the kids became extremely violent when going thru the testing.... but I think you'd have to have the propensity for that...as an adult. Kids react, but adults have the ability to reason and weigh the consequences....regardless of "how they feel".

I have been 95% cured of horrible allergies with this same therapy. I had 3 allergists tell me that I was the most allergic patient to ragweed they had ever seen. The 4th used this concentration/dilution therapy and now ragweed season is nothing more than occasional sniffles on a few days each year.
I saw a video by my doctor (Dr. Chung in Bedford) when he was on a TV show showing how he treated kids with allergies that produced ADD and even violence in children. One small injection of a dilution of the allergen (oftentimes milk) turned a raving monster into a calm child within a few minutes.
I guess you could say I'm a believer.
I understand why you would have your doubts about criminal behavior and allergies.
We certainly don't need any more excuses for bad behavior. It's sad that there will always be people (and lawyers) in society who will try to misuse discoveries and programs for their benefit.
I have read however, that there have been studies linking allergies and diet with mental illness. It would be wonderful if this proved to be something that could benefit families who are dealing with the horrors of schizophrenia and other mental disorders.
Now it becomes clear! Tony Soprano and the whole gang regularly gorge on gravy and then commit heinous crimes. The entire history of Little Italys all over the country can be rewritten less like the "Untouchables" and more from the perspective of "Quincey".
I was allergic as a kid as were a lot of people. I know food allergies are very real and don't wish them on anyone. But really, criminal behavior? I'm with you...it seems a bit of a stretch. But hey, if it saves ONE child, it will be worth the millions spent on it,,,,right?[smirk]
