In our practice we have known for years that food dyes have a link to behavioral issues, especially things like hyperactivity and attention deficit. Last year the Lancet published research that supports what we have known to be true and have see in our office. The European Parliament is now requiring warning labels for foods containing synthetic food coloring.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration as also held a hearing to decide if these food dyes impact a child’s health. The Center for Science in the Public Interest is asking for a synthetic food dye ban. This is exciting to me! We do not need enhanced food coloring!
If you think you or your child suffers from a sensitivity to food colorings avoid them and come see us for testing. We can show you in the office specific symptoms that you may not have realized were a result of food colorings.
