Eating potentially dangerous synthetic dyes. A rainbow of risks.

Americans eat 5 times as much food dye today as we did in 1955.  These quiet poisons taint and color our foods...from breakfast cereals to ice cream.  Some of these dyes are so offensive and dangerous, they are banned all over the world except here in the U.S., where our government (over and over again) seems to be happy to have us be guinea pigs in the synthetic food world.

The three deadliest dyes used are known as: Yellow 5, Yellow 6 and Red 40. These chemicals contain compounds including benzidine and 4-aminobiphenyl, which have been linked directly to cancer. Other dyes that are widely used in our 'food' supply include: Blue 1 and 2, Citrus Red 2, Green 3 and Red 3. All synthetic dyes have dangerous health consequences, particularly for kids whose brains and bodies are still developing.

Accordingly, The Center for Science in the Public Interest, the non-profit Washington D.C.-based consumer-watchdog group has asked the Food and Drug Administration to ban these chemicals. In July 2010, the European Parliament's mandate that foods and beverages containing food dyes must be labeled as such, went into effect for the entire European Union.

Research shows that food dyes are associated with problems in children including allergies, hyperactivity, learning impairments, irritability and aggressiveness.

Natural colorants made from foods are used by some manufacturers.  Check the product ingredient lists for natural colorants such as: beet, carotenes, annatto, capsanthin (paprika extract).

If you or your kids or loved ones have trouble with allergies, hyperactivity (ADD or ADHD), mood swings or learning problems ~ try staying away from these poisons, as much as you can...you should see significant, positive change, quite quickly.
