FDA Food Coloring Hearings Begin Today
It will for me. For now, I read every ingredient list and have a pretty good knowledge of what has dye in it. Dyes like red 40, yellow 5, yellow 6, and blue 1 are some of the dyes we stay away from due to sensitivities to it. These dyes effect us in ways ranging from migraines, poor sleep, chewing on collar or shirt, behavioural impulsivity, cognitive abilities and more. Removing the dye from my families diet has changed all of us. I am so excited the FDA is hearing this issue this week.
Regardless of the outcome, I know, along with thousands of other parents the effect artificial colors can have on our children and can do something right now, warning label or no warning label and that is to simply refuse to buy the products with artificial color in them.
