Don't Drink the Kool-Aid: Tell the FDA to Ban Harmful Synthetic Food Dyes
The Center for Science in the Public Interest has a petition urging the Food and Drug Administration to ban synthetic dyes from food and beverages. There is substantial evidence these dyes harm susceptible children.
In Europe, most synthetic dyes dropped out of the food supply after the European Union required a sensible, clear warning notice on foods containing dyes, based on studies done in the United Kingdom that showed the harmful effects of dyes on kids. Yet many companies that removed dyes from foods in Europe continue to sell the same foods in the United States with the artificial dyes still in them!
