Alarm Over Cancer Risk from Colors in Common Foods

Alarming new scientific evidence shows that artificial colors found in thousands of foods may pose a risk of cancer, hyperactivity and allergic reactions.

The research, conducted by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), calls for common food colors to be banned.  CSPI said the colors were contaminated with known carcinogens and shown to cause cancer in rats.

The Sunday Mail reports:

“Each year, manufacturers pour almost seven million kilograms of artificial colors into common foods like breakfast cereals and biscuits, ice creams, cordials and confectionary, but many consumers have complained of adverse reactions for decades.”
