Researchers find connection
between sunshine and ADHD
A recent study found a correlation between the amount of sunshine in a
particular location and the prevalence of attention-deficit/hyperactivity
disorder. While there are exceptions, such as Florida, places with a lot of
sun tended to have fewer cases of ADHD, data show. Scientists are still
looking for explanations, but they said changes in our biological clocks and
sleep quality may be behind the apparent connection.
