MSG, None for Me – Nasty Dye’s, Just say Goodbye Part Two

OK so you read the first part of this article where I covered MSG.  So now we move on to bigger and better toxic additives like food coloring.  But not your organic and naturally occurring food coloring such as orange from carrots or red from beets.  Nope we are talking about artificial food coloring made in a lab not grandmas kitchen.

It’s no secret that artificial food colorings have been found to cause all kinds of health problems, including ADHD, tumors,  cancer and asthma in children.

So what are we talking about?  Here is a list of artificial food dyes currently used in the US:

Next time you reach for that bag of chocolate that melts in your mouth consider if satisfying your chocolate craving is worth sacrificing your health.

These dangerous food colorings are made with petroleum and contain coal-tar derivatives.  And guess what; they are in more foods than you think.  So what can you do?  READ READ and then READ some more!  After your done reading labels make it a point not to purchase any products that contain these dyes.

So with what you know so far on artificial food colorings do you think it’s OK to give little Billy a bag of candy loaded with these toxic chemicals or use those colorful sprinkles on cupcakes for your little girl?  What about you pregnant mommies?  Can you picture your baby floating around in your tummy and getting this junk to eat via his only life line – the umbilical cord?

I don’t know what’s worse, the toxins disguised as food that cover the shelves of our supermarkets or the fact that the EPA and FDA does not require detailed testing of chemicals to determine the effects on humans.  Yes its true – these chemicals just get made by mad scientists and then poof like an act of magic they are in your foods, no testing required.

Lets just review a few of these colors.  Yellow 6 is widely used in jello, baked goods, drinks, sausages and other foods.  In studies Yellow 6 has been linked to kidney and adrenal gland tumors.

You can find Red 40 in Sun Chips, Goldfish and many other snacks.  It has been linked to hyperactivity disorders and severe migraines.

Blue 1 and 2 has been linked to cancer in mice.  In 2003 Blue 1 leaked into a septic hospital patient’s bloodstream and caused death. Following this the FDA issued an advisory for the public.  You can read more about that here

I could go on and on but the facts are quite clear.  This stuff is poison – stay away from it and definitely don’t give it to your children.

Oh and just in case this article doesn’t phase you I thought I would  mention that when you eat most non organic yogurt and candy said to have strawberry flavor or strawberries in them your actually eating bug juice.  Its a red color ingredient called Carmine and its made by mashing up bugs and getting out the juice from them.  This is done in developing nations then it is sold and shipped to ignorant buyers in the US.  Not only do I find this nasty but there are potential health risks associated with this red bug juice.  If you don’t believe me click here

Remember – colors are your friends when they are naturally found in foods such as sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, spinach, curcumin and many other life building foods.  But beetle juice and mad scientist coloring additives are the enemy so run my friend and don’t look back lest you get trapped!
