Something Borrowed (from Nature), Something Blue: Toxic Synthetic Food Dye may Soon be Replaced

Synthetic Blue Dye (#1 and #2) has a long history of holding the possibility of pernicious outcomes for some people when used in medicines, hospital pharmaceuticals and food. But all of that may be a thing of the past because scientists have uncovered a natural alternative to artificial blue food coloring in cabbage.

Ingredients + Warning: Covid Vaccine

Medical experts are warning people who have a history of severe allergic reactions (such as anaphylactic shock) to vaccines, food, or medications to avoid getting the new Covid vaccination until they first discuss their situation with their healthcare provider.

Neurotoxic Flea Treatment for Pets Contaminating Water

Scientists have recently discovered that pesticides commonly used as flea treatments for pets are contaminating rivers. The new research reveals widespread contamination, with two neurotoxic pesticides found in concentrations that far exceed accepted safe limits.  More specifically, researchers have found widespread contamination of rivers with two neurotoxic pesticides commonly used in veterinary flea products: fipronil and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid. 

Preservatives, Dyes in Medication may be Harmful to Health: Study

Both prescription (Rx) and over-the-counter (OTC) medications frequently contain the same unwanted additives (including preservatives, antimicrobials, dyes) that consumers are intentionally avoiding in their food.  These additives are commonly listed as “inactive” on the drug label, but new scientific studies demonstrate that several additives are not inert and may be potentially harmful.

Common Additive in Food, Meds Linked with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and Colorectal Cancer

More scientific findings linking food additive and nanoparticle Titanium Dioxide (used as a whitening agent in processed foods and medications) with serious adverse health reactions. As earlier studies have demonstrated, the current study links food additive Titanium Dioxide with triggering a host of serious inflammatory bowel diseases and even colorectal cancer.
