Banning Food Colorings Bill SD-101

>> Monday, April 6, 2009

In a recent post on banning food colorings, I did finally come across the banning food colorings Bill No. SD-101. This would require a ban on eight food coloring agents:

Blue No. 1; FD&C Blue No. 2; FD&C Green No. 3; FD&C Orange B; FD&C Red No. 3; FD&C Red No. 40; FD&C Yellow No. 5; and FD&C Yellow No. 6. So out comes the warning.

Warning: "The color additives in this food may cause
hyperactivity and behavioral problems in children."

The labeling requirement also applies to all menus and food advertising notices. Beginning January 1, 2012, the bill prohibits the sale, purchase, use, or selling of food products containing the specified color additives. Violators would be subject to the same penalties as those that apply to adulterated and misbranded foods. To bad that it will not be any sooner. For now we turn to the Feingold Program to help us eliminate all of these horrible colorings in our diets.

In recent studies, it has been found conclusive. The first study on food colorings, and the second study on food colorings both show that there could be a relationship between food colorings and hyperactivity/behavioral problems.

The CSPI has petitioned FDA to ban these synthetic colorings. Hopefully more states will join in the fight against food coloring which contain a variety of chemical including arsenic. So children across the world are being exposed to things like this. Even before they are born as I have explained in Autism Spectrum Disorders.. What Is In It For Autistics.
