Food Coloring Dyes

Posted By on Dec 20, 2011


What up, What up!

Alright people, so it’s time we talk about this topic again.

We actually covered this subject in the past, but you know us…we love to revisit the good stuff.

Well honestly, today’s topic isn’t all that good, it’s actually VERY BAD!

The focus of today is ‘food coloring,’ and we’re going to further discuss some of the crazy complications that can accompany its intake.

So, with out further ado, let’s dive right in!

Food coloring and cancer

Damn, cancer again?

When will the madness stop!

You know, it’s obvious that cancer can be linked-in with so many different factors; therefore, it’s impossible to just ‘pin it’ on one thing. But we must assess many areas if we are to fully tackle this problem. Our goals involving cancer are simple — to widely expose the many ways in which it is able to intrude our lives.

And guess what?

One of these needed areas to address is food coloring! And we’re about to show you why it’s so damn crazy!

Let’s look at some research…

Center for Science in the Public Interest

Ok, so according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, food dyes present unnecessary risks to the public – now doesn’t that sound promising!

What their research found was that these dyes are carcinogens (cancer causing).

Let’s think about that for a second…

These chemical colors bombs are literally everywhere! So yea, they’re tough to get rid of!

They’re in anything from children’s foods to various sports drinks – it’s insane!

Do we really have to keep asking the question of ‘why cancer is so prevalent’ when items like these are in mass circulation? I mean, all of these walks for cancer, all of these event’s to ‘fight’ disease, are they really helping?

Fighting disease correctly

So a while back, we remember seeing a ‘fight cancer event’ in the newspaper that was sponsored by a very popular sports drink (no names here). What’s crazy is that these so-called “fighters’ who were involved in the march were also sucking down red, yellow and blue drinks while they did their little show.

These protesters had no idea that the products they were consuming actually have the potential to cause the exact diseases they were contesting that day!

Can we say IRONIC?

13-15 million pounds of color per year

Yes, that’s correct.

Our lovely food industry is putting about 15 million pounds of these toxic poisons into the foods you buy every single year!

Is there a reason for this?

Actually, yea, there is a very corrupt motive for doing this, and we’ll be discussing it in just a second.

Why are we being poisoned?

This is very simple to answer, one word can sum it up nicely – APPEAL!

That’s it!

These chemicals are put into foods so that people (kids mostly) will want them. Colors attract, and this equates to money!

Now doesn’t that piss you off?

I mean, think about it – food companies are marketing cancer to you and your children!

It’s the equivalent of buying your kids cigarettes – would you do that?

Let’s see what else these chemicals can do…

Food Coloring Outcomes:

  • Hyperactivity in children
  • Cancer in mice
  • Brain tumors
  • Neurobehavioral toxicity
  • Kidney tumors in rats

WOW! Now we’re not geniuses, but that all seems like a whole bunch of bad s#!t!

Look, this junk is very easy to filter out of your life – just read your labels.

If it’s bright and looks fake, turn that product over and read the ingredients!

Do your best to buy foods that are naturally colored. Many products, like those sold at Whole Foods and/or Trader Joe, carry foods that utilize vegetable color – way awesome! Try and buy these instead. Such an easy fix!

So, if you have learned anything from this post today it should be to immediately subtract all chemically colored items from your life.

There is no reason to continue supporting the use of such toxic chemicals in our foods.

Let’s stand up to the food companies and demand they switch their tactics!

Pass the word on and share this with as many people as you can. If you really want to fight diseases like cancer, you should send this post to at least 10 people! You may actually save somebody’s life.

That’s it for today, stay up!

Peace.

    • Luke had a real bad problem with red 40. We still don't let him have it. It was like a switch would go off in him and you could watch the change come over him as he ingested it. Amazing how much stuff has dye in it. Even nacho cheese Doritos have red 40!

  8. I know, it's crazy. Landon has been showing ADHD-like behaviors so our first line of defense was to modify his diet which meant, among other things, eliminating food coloring from our foods. Dramatic difference! Last night both kids had candy from Halloween and within minutes they were b-a-n-a-n-a-s. Had to pitch all the food coloring candy and pay them for it. I saw food coloring in potato bread the other day to make it look more 'yellow'- just silly!

    OK, I really need you to go a little deeper into this food coloring thing. I was just reviewing some memory enhancing pills “top of the line” and noticed that one of them had in the ingredients (Blue 1, Red 40, Yellow 5 and Yellow 6). That appears to be all of the ones in question as a hazard. The question is how much is bad. If a person is taking two pills a day (how much dye does it take to cause the problems you are talking about). Please don’t tell me it depend on the person…I know that. Let’s look at an analogy. Saccharin as a sweetener is bad if taken at a doses equal to 700 cans of soda a day (not going to happen). So how much dye (generally speaking) will cause these bad effects that are being reported. I need some real data instead of just scare talk. I do believe what you say, but I need some facts. I want to take the memory pills, but not at the expense of my health (if there really is a concern, when you take into account my analogy. Remember “Facts Please” not empty words. Tks

    • Hello Paul, I can’t say, as I am not a scientist. All I can say is that data suggests these colorings are very dangerous. I would say to never consume them. There is no one universal approach in my opinion as far as amounts go. They’re all bad, so my recommendation is to avoid them at all costs. Memory pills sound a bit “fishy” to me anyway. Best advice? Clean eating and a healthy lifestyle for an optimal memory. Thanks for the comment!
