Extracts from the Telegraph:
"Additives linked to hyperactivity in children are still used as ingredients in some medicines used by youngsters, a report out today warns.
The Food Commission found that 28 of 70 medicines suitable for under-12s contained one or more of the additives."
"The seven E numbers included in the report were part of a Food Standards Agency study carried out by Southampton University.
Its research found that 17 paracetamol products contained one or more of the additives.
Four medicated throat syrups, two ibuprofen products and five brands of two different antibiotics also contained at least one of the seven E numbers each."
