The FDA is looking at food dyes to see if there is a connection to hyperactivity in children.
What a joke! The dyes may or may not cause problems themselves, but there is a reason for deeper concern.
What food dyes really do is make junk food more appealing to children. Childhood obesity is the real concern since many food dies have already been shown to be safe.
Of course, the science behind any study like that should be suspect. It is really easy to dupe the public with poor science, poor reporting, or spinning the facts to look better than they are.
What junk food does to the system is the subject of an article I am working on. Sorry, I’ve been a little busy lately and haven’t finished it yet. I’ll let subscribers know when it is ready.
