  • Kind of funny how the test is to do a test after eating none and then more and more food dye, then do it again … ignoring how practice will make the test easier every time it is repeated … what a fraud. These people need to be relieved of their money, political influence and whatever else they have gotten by making people sick.

  • I had this issue as a child and my mum kept me off all that stuff but my mum's inlaw my grandma and theirvfamilyvwould plaster me with all that crap and I was hyper and had escma afterwards. Of course in the long run by having that crap it made me hate all of it and so now I'm vegan, mostly raw and cring at ppl feeding children or themselves this sort of stuff.

  • That "recommended" trial at the end is worse than useless.
    1) No blinding. (Fixable.)
    2) Designed to produce bias. (Hey, I'm testing likely bad stuff, I would expect the bad result.)
    3) Too short.
    4) No consent.The actual high dose effects may be permanent.
    5) Done in a place without correct medical equipment. What if anaphylactic reaction happens to one of the dyes?
    7) What kind of testing? Fatigue can be a confounder.

    Seriously, you have to be insane to do it to your own child.

  • That's no "maybe" – this study was pretty strong.
    Always been healthy? There is cumulative damage over the years, such as atherosclerosis.

    The accepted thing since, say, 1920s, was always "eat lots of vegetables". It has never changed – the same as unpatentable, cheap drugs; can't sell 100 brands of tomato, people can't tell and it's less convenient.

    (Many specifics have since been added to the recomendation. Actual evidence of harm of the SAD has been unequivocably shown in many studies.)

  • I haven't seen anyone tell that eating lots of vegetables is bad for you. I'm not as positive that eating any meat is bad, however that actually might be true, as eating lots of meat for long time has been shown to be harmful. Similar with certain kinds of fat.

    Almost all diets actually don't have anything to back them up, so you're attacking a strawman.

    Heck, even conservative AHA diet (shown to work) is watered down due to political pressure and acceptance issues.

  • It's simple, beta carotene (carrots, tomatoes) works well for yellow, orange and red colors and is actually healthy.
    Anthocyanins (blueberries, red cabbage) work well for blue and violet with minor processing (w/ soda for light blue). Good antioxidant.
    Chlorophyll (spinach) works great for greens.
    Black can be had from redcurrant or blackcurrant. Brown from the onion peels or betain (beets) w/ soda.

    These dyes have only a tiny drawback – lower shelf life, some UV sensitivity.

  • Has anyone tipped off moose kakes, self-elected chief of the food police?  You know, the one that lives (temporarily) in the light-colored house in DC.  This is the same ''woman'' that said ''she'' had no idea how to feed her own kids just before ''she'' moved into public housing.

  • CeREAL Ingredients Inc.  a company that engineers artificial berries and flavor bits for the food industry. "You won't see our name on a box or a bag, but you have probably had our product" says Mr.  Feingold, a food technologist/food scientist and lab manager.

    Isn't the ALMIGHTY CREATOR and Mother Nature the Ultimate "food technologist/scientist?    this is the PROBLEM, man playing with nature, and to not know that your eating something UNnatural because it's not labeled is straight DEMONIC!!  The FDA does NOT have our best interests in mind.

  • FYI, there aren't enough strawberries grown in the entire world to provide naturally flavored strawberry foods such as jello, candy, cakes, cereal, etc. Using artificial flavor works better and is more cost effective.

  • Ok but like for real, as a professional I would have expected you to be less subjective. Every single sentence in this video is made to make food dyes look bad despite no evidence of AFCs causing ADHD has ever been presented, that also was not a flawed experiment. It's clear that you have an opinion and that you are trying to persuade your viewers to think like you rather than just presenting information on the subject and letting us decide on our own.
    Benjamin did not conduct his experiments according to the scientific method and very few researching the subject have. This is in part how you give relatively harmless substances a negative reputation. The standards for what is too dangerous for a food color in the EU is a chance higher than 1 in 19 billion. That means that If you gave a food dye that just didn't make it to every single person on earth there would be less than a 50 percent chance that one single person got cancer. Obviously, that is a risk, but nowhere close to how dangerous you make it sound.
