FDA decides No Warning Necessary on Artificial Dyes- However, Consumer Choice can Change Market

  Parents who find the cause of their child's symptoms are buying foods without artificial colors and are not going to wait for the FDA to put warning labels on foods. We are not going to wait for someone to finally complete a very valid study so the FDA can say what we already know. It's about money, it's about consumer choice, but for me it's also about educating others. I was a parent who could not understand what was happening to my child and why no form of discipline would make a difference. I saw my child struggle with depression, a lower self-esteem, uncontrollable fits of anger, and a lack of friends. I was ignorant and unaware that artificial dyes could cause such a behavior change in my child. Two years of this without anyone telling me to look at the dyes my child was eating. Warning labels would have been helpful and saved valuable time with my child. Today he is a bright, sweet child, with the ability to manage his anger rationally like other kids his age. So studies or no studies, I am not buying it any longer. Money talks in this greedy world. That is the only way to make a change, although I hoped for the sake of others that some sort of warning was issued for the other children and adults suffering.

  3. I just found your blog today by chance... I am excited to have another resource. I have been trying so hard for the past three years to eliminate artificial dyes, preservatives, and anything else from our food. I find it incredibly hard to make my case for the change with family members when things like this come out. They think I'm off my rocker. I am going to post a link to this article on my blog - hope you don't mind.
    Thank you!

  4. Hi SAHMomof4,
    I'm sure a few family members thought I was off my rocker too, until they saw the results. Now they recommend people to my blog. :) Thank you for sharing!
