The FDA Food Advisory Committee has determined (11 to 3 vote) there isn't enough evidence to support banning food colorings because of health concerns, particularly behavioral issues in children.
Uh, right...and Europe, Australia, Japan and South Africa are wrong? I think not! I had a false glimmer of hope when I saw the FDA was FINALLY looking into this...I should have know it was too good to be true.
Moms, Dads, and anyone who cares about health and future generations...speak up! Write, email, blog, whatever you can because we are going to have to light a figurative fire to get the FDA to say enough is enough. To get them to stop listening to the lobbyist of all these multi million dollar corporations and start doing their jobs by listening to us, the American people! I find it absurd that companies like Kellogg's and Kraft are making dye free products for elsewhere in the world yet for America it's still the Red #40 loaded crap.
Organic Authority for great articles on this topic and be sure to check out the book The Unhealthy Truth (avaliable on Nook!) by Robyn O'Brien a WONDERFUL book about "how our food is making us sick and what we can do about it."
