What Parents Need to Know about Artificial Colors (but aren’t being told)

by | Feb 5, 2022 | Non-toxic living, Parenting

Did you know that in 2010, the European Union began requiring a warning label for foods that contain artificial colors?

That warning label reads, “May have adverse effects on activity and attention in children.” 

They did this because of several studies that showed that artificial colors increase hyperactivity and negatively impact children with ADHD. 

Does the FDA require a similar label in the United States? 

Nope. 

Even though they have been asked to add a warning, the FDA refuses to do so. They claim these artificial colors are safe (even though several studies have suggested otherwise)! 

What I think it boils down to is this: 

The European Union has chosen to restrict the usage of artificial coloring until they are proven SAFE.

The US, in contrast, has chosen to continue their usage until they are proven DANGEROUS.

This is NOT okay!

The way I look at it, parents today have two options: 

They can do like the EU and avoid artificial colors until they know they are actually safe (which will probably never happen). 

OR, they can do like the US and continue to allow artificial colors into their family’s foods and *hope* they aren’t hurting them in the long run. 

I have chosen to side with the EU, and I hope you will too!

Wouldn’t you rather err on the side of caution? 

Wouldn’t you rather avoid items that might (probably are) dangerous, even if some people aren’t fully convinced? 

Want to know more about artificial colors and ADHD?  I recorded a video earlier this week all about it.
