Ban the Use of Artificial Food Dyes

Food is food, regardless of what color it is, so why have unneeded and unnecessary food dyes been increasing in our food supply even though they have been shown to decrease our mental capabilities and lead to brain disorders?  I have done much research and have analyzed many academic/scientific journals and experiments explaining how artificial food dyes trigger symptoms of ADHD and hyper activity in children, correlate to symptoms of depression and anxiety in adolescence and adults, and lead to a decrease in mental capacity, focusing ability, and make us exhausted more easily.  Studies have shown that when parents discontinue the use of artificial colors and chemicals in their child's diet, they do not exhibit hyperactivity anymore, or their moods and interactions are much calmer and relaxed.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not ban these dyes, among many other artificial ingredients that contain chemicals like aluminum, titanium, arsenic, acetone, and much more.  However, Australia, among many other countries, have banned the use of these artificial food dyes in their food because they are aware of the cognitive disruptions that they can cause.  It is unfair to unknowing consumers, especially to parents of children with ADHD who do not know why their child is acing a certain way.  So let me ask you this - would you rather eat the same-tasting, but dully colored cereals that you've always loved, or would you rather live a life experiencing depression, and/or anxiety?
