Certain conditions like preeclampsia can decrease the amount of oxygen in a pregnant mother's blood. According to a new study from kaiser, children of these women have a 16 percent higher risk of eventually being diagnosed with A.D.D.

New research in the journal pediatrics looked at more than 42-hundred children in Australia and found kids who ate more salt also drank more sugary beverages. Kids in the study who drank more than one sugary beverage a day were 26-percent more likely to be overweight.
