Toxic Food Chemicals Banned in Europe may See Ban in Part of US Soon

A bill introduced to the California state legislature would ban five food additives already banned by the European Union. The additives are either already known to cause health problems or are linked to health problems/cannot be ruled out as potential health hazards when consumed.

Chemical Additives in Processed Food Cross the Placenta, Damage Babies’ Immune System, say scientists

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.  Now a consumer has filed a lawsuit against Mars, Inc. arguing their candy “Skittles” are unfit to eat because they contain a known toxin (yes…titanium dioxide) that the company had pledged six years ago to phase out.

Colon, Gut Microbiota Problems Linked with Common Food Additive

The commonly used food additive titanium dioxide–a nanoparticle (E171)–has once again been linked with serious health outcomes in yet another scientific study.   Like the studies before it, the current study found that the food additive titanium dioxide holds the potential to do some real harm to the colon and gut microbiota, and to disrupt liver functioning. 

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.
