Tell FDA to Ban Harmful Artificial Coloring

Please take a couple of seconds to add your name to this petition to the FDA to ban food dyes which are linked to ADHD. The petition will be delivered tomorrow, so act quickly. This issue is important to me as a teacher of children with learning disabilities (and as an eater). Artificial coloring is so unnecessary. Honestly, it just makes me angry.

According to an e-mail I received from Fresh:

Food safety officials in Europe have moved much more quickly to protect children from artificial dyes. As a consequence, Kellogg, Kraft, McDonald's, and other American companies that do business in Europe use safe, natural colorings there-but harmful, synthetic petrochemicals here.

For more research and background information, check out "Food Dyes: A Rainbow of Risks," a report from the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
