Cod liver oil

Hi there......what are your views regarding giving Cod liver oil to help treat ADD symptoms. I have read that Cod liver oil can have serious side effects.

    A good healthy diet is important for anybody.  While studies have shown that some food dyes can cause ADHD like symptoms, I have never seen a study showing that cod liver oil would be helpful.  If you wanted to try anything I would try and find some wild salmon fish oil pills.  They are super high in Omega-3's.
