Food Dye Danger

This is a startling article about the food dye in MANY of our common, everyday foods.
Here are a few highlights directly from the article (emphasis mine):
- Red 3, has actually been identified as a carcinogen by the FDA, but you can still find it on supermarket shelves.
- Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6 -- contain cancer-causing substances.
- The dyes are in a staggering array of foods, from salad dressing to matzo balls. In fact, manufacturers put about 15 million pounds of eight synthetic dyes into the food supply each year,
- Do not let your children be caught by the looks of a product. Chances are, if it is brightly colored it is due to one of these dyes and they are also most likely charging more for the product.

Just another reason to start from scratch!
