On Wednesday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will host a public meeting to help determine whether a link exists between artificial coloring and hyperactivity in children.

This theory has been debated by researchers and parents for the past 40 years, but was recently given new credence by a 2007 study from South Hampton, UK, which found that children who consumed a mixture of artificial colors and sodium benzoate (a preservative) displayed higher levels of hyperactivity than those who did not.
