Vojdani 2015: Immune reactivity to food coloring

Vojdani2015Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, 2015. 21 Suppl 1:52-62.

During the past 50 years, the amount of synthetic dye used in foods has increased by 500%.  At the same time, there has been an alarming rise in behavioral problems such as aggression, attention deficit disorder (ADD), and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The molecules of synthetic colorants are small, and the immune system finds it difficult to defend the body against them.

QUOTE:  “This consumption can activate the inflammatory cascade, can result in the induction of intestinal permeability to large antigenic molecules, and could lead to cross-reactivities, autoimmunities, and even neurobehavioral disorders.”

SHULA’S NOTE:  It’s not just behavior that can be affected by food dyes.  They can ruin your health in a whole lot of ways.
