Hi. I figured out a long time ago that my son did better off of milk, but he could eat tons of cheese with no problems. I also couldn't give him vitamins because he would have a bad behavioral change within 15 minutes of taking them. Talking with a mom on one of my lists, she mention that palmitate might be a problem (she also loves Dr. Megson's site). I had been giving my son low fat milk (per doctor's request), and low fat has palmitate, where whole milk does not. He is fine now on whole milk. Anyway, I went to the health food store and found vitamins with beta charotine (sorry if spelled wrong) instead of palmitates. When I gave them to my son, he had NO reaction! So, for us, palmitates are something to be avoided. Very hard to do, as they are everywhere. He does get some, but not like he had been when he was drinking low fat milk 4-5 times a day.
