Feingold Diet and Autism Ranking: No evidence

History

According to the Feingold Association of the United States

‘In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, Dr. Feingold developed what he named the “KP” diet. (It was based on the Lockey allergy diet used at the Mayo Clinic.)

‘Dr. Feingold found that he could help about half of the children who were diagnosed with what was then called hyperkinesis or hyperactivity. The media changed the name of the KP Diet to the Feingold Diet, and parent support groups chose the name “Feingold Associations” to honor the doctor who had helped their families’
