A new warning from scientists about food additives: Billions of nanoparticle food additives can reach infants, even crossing the placenta during pregnancy. These chemical food additives can change the baby’s gut microbiome and damage gut cells. This phenomenon, researchers believe, likely raises allergy and immune disorder risk.
Skittles Lawsuit: Toxin Titanium Dioxide
Over the years we have published a number of studies linking the food additive titanium dioxide to a number of serious health consequences.
