Food dyes are one of the most widely used and dangerous additives, yet are openly marketed and sold in the US despite proof that they are carcinogens.
The three most widely used dyes, Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6, are contaminated with known carcinogens … ☠
Another dye, Red 3, has been acknowledged for years by the Food and Drug Administration to be a carcinogen, yet it is still in the food supply.
In their 58-page report (PDF), “Food Dyes: A Rainbow of Risks,” The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) revealed that nine of the food dyes currently approved for use in the United States are linked to health issues ranging from cancer and hyperactivity to allergy-like reactions.
The European Union has recently placed regulations on labeling food dyes to inform consumers of the health risks. The United States has no such requirement. 🇺🇸 Per Usual.
I’m not even saying outlaw them entirely. Just make it known on the label, so we can make an informed choice ourselves!
