I’m tired of our kids being poisoned by foods and products that are unsafe yet are still on grocery store shelves.

The dye Yellow #5 (Tartrazine) has made me sick for years throughout my childhood and adult life. It's only recently as an adult that I started to pay attention to food ingredient labels before consumption and realized that any food that had Yellow #5 (Tartrazine) as an ingredient caused my sickness.

What would happen in the past is, I would be eating some food (unknowingly that tartrazine is an ingredient) and suddenly my sinuses would start to drain down the back of my throat a few minutes after swallowing the first bite, an immediate effect! Later on the same day, I would get a severe sore throat, my chest would feel congested and I would begin coughing uncontrollably, by the next day the mucus would be yellow-ish green indicating that there is an infection, and only a doctor's visit to get anti-biotics among other medications helps to get rid of the infection.

Now, I do my very best to avoid Yellow #5 (Tartrazine), I also avoid eating any yellow-ish, orange-ish or red-ish foods that I don't know the ingredients for to keep myself safe from being ill, similarly, I avoid non-food items that have Yellow #5 (Tartrazine) as an ingredient.

Yellow #5 (Tartrazine) is used in so many of our foods, beverages, body, and hair care products (such as soaps, etc.), and while most people may not notice the effects of it on their bodies or have the same effects as I do, it's still a poison to our bodies, one that should be avoided at all costs!
