In brief: He could be having

Breath-holding spells, which can be treated by having him breathe into a paper bag.
Or a vagal reaction like some people have at the sight of blood. Video an episide to show his pediatrician.

This strongly suggests that he has biochemically induced limbic system dysfunction and i would guess that he has other symptoms, particularly in behavior, temper tantrums etc.
The easiest way to do this is "junk" ingestion, for it is widespread in the U.S.
