Ban the use of artificial food color, require labels on all food coloring

This petition had 318 supporters


Artificial food dyes, such as yellow 6, have been shown to cause cancer in animal studies. Yellow 5 and Red 40 often contain illegally high levels of known carcinogens. Which is why they have been banned in the U.K and European Union. These artificial colors are known to cause severe allergic reactions, as well as a number of serious behavioral issues in children including ADHD, depression, anxiety, loss of control emotionally and physically, and violent tantrums. After you sign the petition, make sure to share the link! If you are skeptical, don't sign on my word alone. Do an Internet search for Red #40, you will be horrified by what food dye is made of, and what it is does to people, particularly children. Here are a few links to get you started.
