Sue Dengate, Australia's Food Additives Expert Talks About Sleep Disturbances

Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) July 06, 2009 -- Sue Dengate, Australia’s Food Additives Expert is this week’s Special Guest on Sleep With The Experts webinar

Diet can help with sleeping issues, like difficulty falling asleep, frequent night waking, restless legs, 'weird' dreams, nightmares, night terrors, and sleep walking in babies, children and adults.

The food chemicals that have been associated with insomnia include artificial colours, natural colour annatto, preservatives, synthetic antioxidants, flavour enhancers and naturally occurring chemicals called salicylates and amines. Dairy foods and less commonly wheat or gluten can be a problem for some people but are less likely to be a problem than additives and salicylates. Sleep disturbance can also be the unintended side effect of a medication.

Sue Dengate will help people find which foods affect them and their sleeping in her presentation Fed Up With Sleep Disturbances.

Sue Dengate is a psychology graduate and former high school teacher who became interested in the effects of food additives after the birth of her first child 20 years ago.

She is author of the bestselling Fed Up series, published by Random House Australia. In 2001, Sue completed a round the world 'supermarket tour' to compare the use of food additives in 15 countries. Her groundbreaking study about the behavioural effects of a common bread preservative was published in a medical journal in 2002.

Sue, helped by her husband Dr Howard Dengate, a food scientist, runs the Food Intolerance Network through the website The Food Intolerance Network provides independent information about the effects of food on behaviour, health and learning ability in both children and adults, and support for families using a low-chemical elimination diet free of additives, low in salicylates, amines and flavour enhancers (FAILSAFE).

Sue Dengate was nominated as Australian of the Year in 2005 and 2006.
