Say No to Artificial Dyes Now
Coloring in our food is linked to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children. These artificial colorants are changing the neurochemistry of our brains. It’s been proven by three decades of studies and Europe has already acted. So why is the FDA still sitting on its hands?
After years of pressure by activists, the FDA is finally holding a meeting to review this issue on March 30. We'll deliver your comments by the deadline on March 23.
For more research and background information, check out "Food Dyes: A Rainbow of Risks," a report from the Center for Science in the Public Interest: http://cspinet.org/new/pdf/food-dyes-rainbow-of-risks.pdf
Sign below to tell the FDA: we don’t need bright food, we need healthy food.
Artificial food dyes have been linked to behavioral disorders in children and other long-term medical risks. Regulators in the EU and UK have already acted to address these issues. As concerned citizens, we call on you to eliminate these harmful additives from our food and protect our national health.
