The Food Additives Pile Up
Currently, the average person eats over 124 pounds of food additives, including artificial colors, EVERY YEAR! There is no testing on the cumulative effects of combining food colors with all these chemicals, not to mention the myriad other chemicals to which we are exposed in our air and water, like pesticides, for example.
Additionally, many toxic substances in our food supply show delayed responses.† In other words, you might eat food additives in your diet today but you may experience the effects years from now.† So, these responses are also possible from food dyes.
There is substantial evidence to ban food colors, particularly from the diets of children.† Itís time the FDA stepped up its efforts to ensure that we, and our children, are not unknowingly harmed by toxic ingredients that should never have been added to food in the first place.
